Human express saccades: effects of randomization and daily practice

  title={Human express saccades: effects of randomization and daily practice},
  author={Burkhart Fischer and E. Ramsperger},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
When human subjects are asked to execute saccades from a fixation point to a peripheral target, if the fixation point is turned off some time (200 ms) before the target is turned on, the distribution of the saccadic reaction times is bimodal. The first peak occurs at about 100 ms and represents the population of express saccades. If the target location is kept constant the express saccades have reaction times of about 100 ms. If the target location is randomized between right and left (distance… CONTINUE READING
