Abstract : Optokinetic responses from 20 cats and 20 human subjects were compared under two different experimental conditions. Data indicate that cat and man possess completely different optokinetic responses: (1) cats show a well developed secondary optokinetic response, while humans do not; (2) humans show a directional preponderance in primary optokinetic nystagmus not found in cat; (3) marked adaptation of the primary optokinetic response was also characteristic of the human subjects.
