Richards, J.E. (unpublished manuscript). Neurophysiological basis of eye movements, and the effect of attention on eye movements in the development of infant saccades, smooth pursuit, and visual tracking.
There is an abundant literature on the neurophysiological control of eye movements in cats, primates, mammals. This paper reviews that literature, combining some findings of the attention effects on eye movements, developmental changes in the neurophysiological basis of eye movements in early infancy, and makes some conclusions about how infant eye movements develop over the first 6 months. Given those conclusions, some experiments will be presented to tease apart the multiple brain systems that control eye movement in the young infants
Four conclusions will be made about infant eye movement development.
Four measures of respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) in R-R intervals were calculated from a five minute recording of 3 to 6 month old full-term infants. The measurement structure of these measures was estimated with linear structural equation modeling. The latent variables from the measurement structure correlated highly with each other, and with other measures of heart functioning. The latent variables were more highly correlated with each other than were the "observed" variables. The application of measurement structure analysis to RSA measurement in young infants would substantially improve studies using RSA.
