AbstractThe optokinetic response of developing flounder larvae was examined for directional preference. Young symmetric larvae exhibit no such preference. However, older asymmetric larvae, in which the eyes have begun to migrate, show diminished responsiveness to stripes moving from their left-to-right (clockwise as viewed from above). An explanation of this phenomenon may be neglect of input from the rapidly migrating eye.
