Detection of speed changes during pursuit eye movements

Abstract

The human visual system is strikingly insensitive to speed changes attributed to the need to infer visual acceleration, observed during stationary fixation, indirectly by comparing velocities integrated over time. The objective of this study was to test if smooth pursuit eye movements improve the detection of speed changes. This was expected for two reasons… (More)
