Eye acceleration during large horizontal saccades in man.
The pattern of acceleration was recorded during horizontal saccadic eye movements using a light-weight accelerometer fixed to a scleral contact lens. Horizontal saccades of 15-20 degrees were dominated by either several pulses of acceleration, with a frequency of around 40 Hz. or a single acceleration-deceleration wave followed by lower amplitude polyphasic activity of about 80 Hz. These features are unlikely to be due to slippage or resonance in the contact lens-accelerometer system, as very...Expand abstract
