Abstract

The horizontal cervico-ocular reflex (HCOR) comprises compensatory eye movements that are evoked by rotation of the body about the fixed head. This head goes together with the horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex (HVOR) in the sense that a counterclockwise rotation of the body about the fixed head evokes a counter clockwise compensatory eye movement. This counterclockwise eye movement is evoked if the head and body are rotated in a clockwise direction or if the head is rotated clockwise about the body. The gain of the HCOR is maximal for relatively low-frequency stimuli. In addition to the compensatory slow-phase eye movement, the HCOR is depicted by a fast-phase eye movement that is compensatory as well.
