Title: Optimal Control Strategies for Saccadic Eye Movements in Humans
Author: Gaumond, T
Abstract: Human motor control systems are complicated by issues of nonlinearity , redundancy , and multiple degrees of freedom . A great variety of mathematical and engineering approaches have been applied to the problem of modeling human movement systems : open and closed loop control , dynamic optimization , internal models , and learning . In this dissertation , aspects of these various approaches will be utilized within the context of the human eye system . After establishing the mathematical description of ocular dynamics we shall explore the differences between the linear system and nonlinear system , controllability , parameter sensitivity , and the use of time optimal control as an approach to understanding neural strategies that correspond to eye movement . In particular , optimization theory provides one scenario for the selection process of motor planning . By the choice of appropriate cost functions , we shall examine the cost of movement in terms of measures that correspond to efficiency , smoothness , accuracy and duration . v
