1. Monkeys were trained to look to brief visual targets presented in a completely darkened room. On some trials, after the visual target disappeared but before a saccade to the target could be initiated, the eyes were driven to another position in the orbit by electrical stimulation of the superior colliculus. Retinocentric models of the saccadic system predict that a saccade with a predetermined distance and direction based entirely on retinal error will occur. If this were the case, gaze… CONTINUE READING
