We have tested Listing's law in the monkey using the dual search coil technique to record 3-dimensional eye positions during smooth pursuit and during spontaneous eye movements in the light. Our results indicate that during smooth pursuit the eye positions obey Listing's law with a least the same accuracy as during spontaneous eye movements or during periods of fixations.
