Four groups of subjects performed a series of tracking tasks on two different target courses and under two conditions of surround illumination. The tasks were varied from pure compensatory to pure pursuit (following) tracking. In general, performance was superior with either surround illumination with a 50 or higher percent of pursuit component. However, the interactions between target course rates, surround illumination, a~d percent pursuit component in the task are large and complex. This is
