In visual orienting, as in face recognition, there is evidence for the involvement of both cortical and subcortical circuits. A gross characterization of the distinction is that subcortical saccades tend to be rapid, automatic, and less accurate in character, whereas cortical saccades are slower, and directed by volitional and attentional factors. I argue that while subcortical saccades are present from birth, cortical saccades are controlled by representations that emerge during interactions with the external environment.
