We demonstrated that in a natural task involving hand-eye coordination gaze leads hand position by saccades interleaved with ocular fixation or pursuit. Quite remarkably, pursuit is not only driven by retinal slip, but also by an internal goal which may reflect a compromise between exploring a future path and verifying that the hands move along the desired path. This indicates that pursuit is much more flexible than previously thought and shows a clear functional role for such flexibility.
