Abstract or Introduction
The purpose of this study is to better understand the manually influenced eye dominance. The human visual system seems to offer various control mechanisms in order to provide the motor system with all necessary information for optimizing performance. Previous studies have shown that input through the visual system seems to dominate other sensory systems and that it is the sensory source, upon which we rely the most.
A circular manual motor Task with the thumb and the index finger can influence the eye dominance. This assumption was tested on thirty-one right-handed healthy tennis players. The subjects performed two different hand-eye dominance screening tests, the conventional Porta Test and the new Circular Test that were compared separately one-handed, with the right hand as well as additionally combined with the left hand. The right-handed classifications were defined as: crossed (right-hand/left-eye) and consistent (right-hand/right-eye). The left-handed classifications were defined as: crossed-switch (eye dominance switches with the test hand); consistent (same dominance in eyes and hands).
