@H.Muster You're right: Egocentrism. You should provide it as the answer.

comment Perceptual flicker when rotating my face
I took your suggestion. I recorded myself and reviewed the video: my eyes were stable -- no saccades and no vestibulo-ocular reflex. I wouldn't have expected the vestibulo-ocular reflex because eye muscles can't rotate the eyes about their pupils, right? I wonder if the phenomenon I experience is saccadic masking without any eye movement.

comment What structures in the brain are called upon to strengthen coupling between bilateral movements?
Are hemispheres relevant? Crossed-extensor reflexes I can believe, but I don't know of any evidence of interhemispheric locking or evidence that contralateral coordination is harder than ipsilateral. Try tapping your foot and rubbing your belly at the same time -- be sure to compare your ipsilateral and contralateral coordination. (For me, there's no difference.)
