Abatrac-The characteristics of saccadic reactions to double steps of a target were analysed as a function of the time lapse between the second target step and the onset of the response. The analysis suggests that goal-directed saccades are prepared in two steps; first a decision as to their direction is taken which requires a randomly varying time, and subsequently their amplitude is calculated as a time average of the fixation error. In addition. the analysis demonstrates that the preparatory… CONTINUE READING
