Abstract

The character of relationship of non-visual eye movements and functional brain asymmetry in human was analyzed. It was discovered that leftward and rightward non-visual eye movements are not related to a level of subjects’ sensomotor development. The difference in number of upward and downward non-visual eye movements is reliable for subjects with different level of functional brain asymmetry.
