  • Monkeys were trained to change their direction of gaze from one point (fixation point) to another (target). If the fixation point was extinguished at the same time when the new target occurred the saccadic reaction times (SRT) were in the order of 200 ms. If the fixation point disappeared 150-250 ms before the new target occurred (gap with no visible stimulus) monkeys made regular saccades after shorter reaction times of about 140 ms. In addition animals in the gap situation made saccades that… CONTINUE READING
