Gaze movements: patterns linking latency and VOR gain
W. H. Zangemeister and L. Stark. Neuro-Ophthalmology 1989; Vol. 9 : Pages 299-308

Eye-movements alone can shift gaze. For head movement to contribute to gaze directly, it is necessary to suppress the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) while rotating the head. The authors describe the connection between VOR gain and the latency defined gaze types especially with respect to amplitude of gaze shift. Eye dominant gaze shift strategies can then be distinguished from head dominant strategies.
