Abstract : In a series of experiments, significant improvements were found in ocular pursuit tracking with practice. These improvements, which held for various directions of tracking, endured beyond the training period. Also, the effect of ocular pursuit training on subsequent performance in a variety of visualmotor tasks was studied. In two transfer of training experiments, a high degree of positive transfer was found in the first but not in the second study. (Author)
