Optokinetic eye movements in albino rabbits: inversion in anterior visual field.


When visual contrasts are restricted to the anterior sector (90 degrees to 180 degrees) of the albino rabbit's visual field, eye position is dramatically unstable, and when such contrasts are moved, horizontal optokinetic eye movements are inverted: the direction of pursuit is opposite to that of the stimulus. In the posterior visual field stability and optokinetic reactions are normal, as in all parts of the pigmented rabbit's visual field. This phenomenon may be one more of the complex of visual system defects linked to albinism.
