In nonstationary noisy systems the traditional cross-correlation method may not appropriately detect all cases of interdependencies between coupled systems. The phase-synchronization method was previously found useful in detecting synchronization in several systems. We here applied the phase-synchronization decay to study the synchronization between six combinations of binocular fixational eye movement components. We found that only two components were synchronized: the right and left horizontal with each other and the right and left vertical. Furthermore, the vertical-vertical components were much more synchronized than the horizontal.
