When we move through our dynamic visual environment, we typically use smooth pursuit eye movements to continuously foveate moving objects of interest. Importantly, these ongoing eye movements are tightly linked to perception, hand movements, and cognitive processes during sensorimotor tasks. When a novel object appears suddenly, we have to evaluate whether it should be approached, avoided, or requires no action. This evaluative process requires information processing and potentially integration into ongoing movements. My PhD work will address whether we can use smooth pursuit eye movements as a model system to investigate processing and integration of novel visual stimuli during ongoing movements.
