The main objective of this study is to understand how the position of the target influences the ocular movement in navigational and informative tasks. The study included 20 university students, 13 females and seven males, aged between 18 and 44, from a university. Participants answered a sociodemographic questionnaire and performed two tasks, one navigational and one informative. Comparisons were performed through the MANOVA test (2x2) at the level of target position, number and duration of blinks. Results showed no significant p values but moderate strong statistical effects on some variables. We conclude that the target's position in the navigational task significantly influences university students' ocular movement and the individual's position influences the ocular movement in both tasks, navigational and informative.
