It is well established that elementary motion detectors are only able to code for the movement of a contour perpendicular to its orientation. This shortcoming explains why the initial direction of smooth-pursuit eye movements is directed orthogonal to the orientation of a moving contour independent of its veridical direction of motion. Here, we replicated this finding and asked whether this directional error can be reduced by subjects' prediction of upcoming target moving direction and whether… CONTINUE READING
