This review also discusses relationships between smooth pursuit and visual discrimination of motion direction and the phenomenon of blindsight. Cortical effects of strabismus on motion processing and smooth pursuit are reviewed. Curr Opin Neurol 11:31–38. © 1998 Rapid Science Ltd © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
