Saccadic inhibition refers to the strong temporary decrease in saccadic initiation observed when a visual distractor appears shortly after the onset of a saccadic target. Here, to gain a better understanding of this phenomenon, we assessed whether saccade amplitude changes could accompany these modulations of latency distributions. As previous studies on the saccadic system using visual backward masking--a protocol in which the mask appears shortly after the target--showed latency increases and… CONTINUE READING
