Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Previous eye movement studies in far target aiming have shown that a longer final eye fixation right before movement initiation results in enhanced performance accuracy (e.g., Vickers, 1996). Previous studies have been limited to fixed target aiming. In the present study eye movements were measured while participants attempted to intercept a moving target. The identification of the relationship between eye movements and limb kinematics in moving target interception will provide further understanding of perceptionaction coupling in rapid intercepting movement.
