When two elements are presented closely aligned, the average saccade endpoint will generally be located in between these two elements. This 'global effect' has been explained in terms of the center of gravity account which states that the saccade endpoint is based on the relative saliency of the different elements in the visual display. In the current(More)
When a target and a distractor are presented in close proximity, an eye movement will generally land in between these two elements. This is known as the 'global effect' and has been claimed to be a reflection of the averaged saccade programs towards both locations. The aim of the present study was to systematically investigate whether there is only a(More)
The decision about which location should be the goal of the next eye movement is known to be determined by the interaction between auditory and visual input. This interaction can be explained by the vector theory that states that each element (either visual or auditory) in a scene evokes a vector in the oculomotor system. These vectors determine the(More)
A factor that is often not considered in multisensory research is the distance from which information is presented. Interestingly, various studies have shown that the distance at which information is presented can modulate the strength of multisensory interactions. In addition, our everyday multisensory experience in near and far space is rather(More)
Palinopsia is an abnormal perseverative visual phenomenon, whose relation to normal afterimages is unknown. We measured palinoptic positive visual afterimages in a patient with a cerebral lesion. Positive afterimages were confined to the left inferior quadrant, which allowed a comparison between afterimages in the intact and the affected part of his visual(More)

The new readout electronics for the electromagnetic calorimeter TAPS is being built by the Gießen physics department in collaboration with KVI, Groningen (The Netherlands) and the University of Basel. It is planned to employ the new electronics in joint experiments with TAPS and the dilepton spectrometer HADES at GSI, Darmstadt. The concept is based on the(More)
Eye movements towards a new target can be guided or disrupted by input from multiple modalities. The degree of oculomotor competition evoked by a distractor depends on both distractor and target properties, such as distractor salience or certainty regarding the target location. The ability to localize the target is particularly important when studying(More)
