It is well known that the latencies of target elicited saccades are significantly reduced when the target onset is preceded shortly by the offset of a fixation point (Saslow 1967). Fischer and Boch (1983) reported the discovery that, with monkeys as subjects, in addition to the general reduction in saccade latencies previously reported, there occurred a separate population of saccades with extremely short reaction times. They termed this population “express saccades”, and more recenly reported… CONTINUE READING
