To accurately localize a visual target in space despite eye movement-induced shifts of its retinal image, the brain must take into account both its retinal location and information about current eye position or at least the preceding eye displacement. We examined this ability with respect to saccadic eye movements by applying "double-step" stimuli, where the locations of two sequentially flashed target lights have to be fixated by two successive saccades performed after their disappearance.
