The present study was designed to evaluate whether fixation point offsets have the same effects on the average latencies of prosaccades (responses towards target) and antisaccades (responses away from target). Gap and overlap conditions were run with and without an acoustic warning signal. The ‘gap effect’ was taken to be the difference in mean reaction time between gap and overlap trials. This effect was dramatically reduced by the presentation of the warning signal. Without this signal… CONTINUE READING
