Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine binocular eye movements in humans with two types of unstructured visual fields, diffuse light and darkness, and to compare these conditions to normal binocular vision. Variability of eye movements, both monocular and binocular, increased markedly in unstructured fields. This effect was especially evident for movement in the horizontal plane. The findings are interpreted in terms of recent evidence of the neurophysiological conditions for binocular fusion in cats.
