  • Each entry in the table reports the percentage of experiments in which the effect of the learning conditions on eye acceleration was significant at the 5% level or better. Values in parentheses give the number of experiments used for each analysis. Eye acceleration was measured in the interval 50–80 msec after the onset of pursuit and was analyzed separately for learning and test trials. Some experiments appear in the table twice, because both learning and test trials were available for analysis. Data shown as control experiments were taken from the first and last block of trials of experiments that did not deliver learning trials. Instead, monkeys D and E completed 600 test trials that consisted of targets moving rightward or leftward at 10 or 25°/sec.
