Motor learning is the ability that the brain utilizes to optimize a task. The human brain has the ability to change its motor control strategy with the use of memory and learning. This study analyzed the latency of convergent and divergent eye movements from a predictable and non-predictable stimulus. Two stimulus types, a single frequency sinusoidal wave and a multi frequency sinusoidal wave, were presented to the subject. The subject was asked to track the target and data were collected utilizing an eye movement monitor. The goal of the study was to determine if the feedback portion of the vergence system changed as a result of learning. Results show that the response-timing index decreases and movements can occur before stimulus onset when learning is utilized.
