Adaptation is the modification of structure or form due to environmental conditions. It is a key aspect of species survival and is found in most major physiological systems. This study analyzed adaptive effects of the vergence system using an infrared limbus-tracking device to record eye movements. Specifically, this study investigated how small steps of 1 degree influence 4, and 8 degree steps. Adaptation was observed in the two subjects studied as noted by the decrease in velocity of vergence eye movements.
