Each blink of the eyelids is associated with a concurrent suppression of vision that lasts as long as 200 msec. Saccadic eye movements are also associated with a concurrent suppression of vision. Previous studies suggested that blink and saccadic suppression may be the result of a single mechanism. Volkmann, Riggs, White and Moore [(1978) Vision Research, 18, 1193-1199] demonstrated that saccadic suppression is most evident for low spatial frequency stimuli. However, the effect of stimulus… CONTINUE READING
