Following the princeps investigations of Marc Jeannerod on action-perception, specifically, goal-directed movement, this review article addresses visual and non-visual processes involved in guiding the hand in reaching or grasping tasks. The contributions of different sources of correction of ongoing movements are considered; these include visual feedback(More)
Telestereoscopic viewing provides a method to distort egocentric distance perception by artificially increasing the interpupillary distance. Adaptation to such a visual rearrangement is little understood. Two experiments were performed in order to dissociate the effects of a sustained increased vergence demand, from those of an active calibration of the(More)
While the mechanisms of short-term adaptation to prism-altered apparent visual direction have been widely investigated, the processes underlying adaptation to prism-altered perceived distance are less well known. This study used a hand-pointing paradigm and exposure with base-out prisms to evaluate the relative contributions of sensory (visual and(More)
Under natural viewing conditions, the accommodation and vergence systems adjust the focus and the binocular alignment of the eyes in response to changes in viewing distance. The two responses are linked via cross-coupling and proceed almost simultaneously. Some optical devices, such as virtual reality or helmet mounted displays, create an oculomotor(More)
According to the eye muscle potentiation (EMP) hypothesis, sustained vergence leads to changes in egocentric perceived distance. This perceptual effect has been attributed to a change in the resting or tonic state of vergence. The goal of the present study was to test the EMP hypothesis by quantifying the relationship between prism-induced changes in tonic(More)
The processes underlying short-term plasticity induced by visuomotor adaptation to a shifted visual field are still debated. Two main sources of error can induce motor adaptation: reaching feedback errors, which correspond to visually perceived discrepancies between hand and target positions, and errors between predicted and actual visual reafferences of(More)
PURPOSE Stereoscopic displays challenge the neural cross-coupling between accommodation and vergence by inducing a constant accommodative demand and a varying vergence demand. Stereoscopic viewing calls for a decrease in the gain of vergence accommodation, which is the accommodation caused by vergence, quantified by using the convergence-accommodation to(More)
BACKGROUND Several tests are available to optometrists for investigating accommodation and vergence. This study sought to investigate the agreement between clinical and laboratory methods and to clarify which components are actually measured when tonic and cross-link of accommodation and vergence are assessed. METHODS Tonic vergence, tonic accommodation,(More)
