Figure 20.5

The metrics of smooth pursuit eye movements. These traces show eye movements (blue lines) tracking a stimulus moving at three different velocities (red lines). After a quick saccade to capture the target, the eye movement attains a velocity that matches the velocity of the target. (After Fuchs, 1967.)
