The accuracy of saccades directed towards the remembered positions of targets in left (LVF) or right (RVF) visual hemifield was measured. The majority of right-handed subjects were found to be more accurate at directing their gaze to locations in the LVF than in the RVF, suggesting that the right hemisphere is superior to the left in oculomotor control. Even after completion of a corrective saccade following the primary saccade, subjects systematically undershot target direction and overshot target depth, suggesting that visual feedback normally plays an important role in the fine guidance of gaze after the completion of a primary saccade.
