When a temporal gap is introduced between the offset of the central fixation point and the appearance of a new target, saccadic reaction time is reduced (gap effect) and a special population of extremely fast saccades occurs (express saccades). It has been hypothesized that the gap triggers a readiness signal, which is responsible for the reduced saccadic reaction times. Here we recorded event-related potentials during the gap to in vestigate the central processes associated with the gener… CONTINUE READING
