Stabilized Retinal Images and Visual Perception

  title={Stabilized Retinal Images and Visual Perception},
  author={R. Pritchard},
Earlier investigations of eye movements have shown that when a subject “fixates” on a stationary target, small involuntary rotations of the eyeball persist (Lord and Wright, 1950; Ratliff and Riggs, 1950; Barlow, 1952; Ditchburn and Ginsborg, 1953; Riggs, 1958). As a result, the image of the target on the retina is in continuous motion. A slow drift, which carries the image away from the center of the fovea, is terminated and corrected for by an impulsive change in the direction of the optic… Expand
