Oculomotor Delayed Response task

This task is said to measure Working Memory.

In this task, subjects fixate on a central stimulus while a target will appear unpredictably in the peripheral space. Subjects must memorize the location of the target, and after a varied delay period, the fixation cue disappears. The disappearance of the fixation point cues the participant to make an eye movement to the location the target appeared. The response is voluntary and utilizes representation of the object in working memory.
