Visually guided voluntary eye movements are critical for human sight. However, questions remain about cortical circuitry controlling these movements, especially when targets are purely cyclopean (i.e., only visible when information from both eyes is combined). To address this knowledge gap, we measured eye movements in human subjects viewing such targets.
