[visionlist] Stimulating Nystagmus

Hello All,

I would like to know if there is any literature on stimulating  
nystagmus on normal subjects. I have noticed that sometimes, on a  
train, passengers can make very fast and periodic eye movements when  
following targets outside the train.

This is outside of my area of expertise, and thought of asking here  
first, before launching myself in a literature search. I wonder if  
this has been studied, and how similar these movements are to the ones  
found in nystagmus patients.

Many thanks
