Oculomotor Factors In Visual Perceptual Response Efficiency

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The preprogramming of saccadic eye movements is examined by studying the pattern of oculomotor sequences while scanning a visual display. The effects of interference employing a backward masking paradigm on the oculomotor response as well as on position judgment and stimulus identification are examined. Data indicate that the motor programming of an ocular saccade is linked to the perceptual analysis of target position and cannot be set in motion with an impairment in perceptual localization.
