NECK-EYE REFLEX

is a reflex movement which ensures that the eyes (if fixated) remain, as far as possible focussed on the object whilst the direction of the head is changed.

NECK-EYE REFLEX: "The ability for the eyes to remain fixated irrespective of the necks rotation is due to the neck-eye reflex."
