The authors investigated mechanisms involved in transformation of spatially extended targets into saccadic eye-movement vectors. Human subjects performed horizontal saccades to targets of varying diameter, which contained no conspicuous elements within the target shape. With increasing target size, express saccades and saccades with fast regular latencies decreased in frequency, whereas frequency of saccades with slow regular latencies increased. For all targets, saccade amplitude distributions… CONTINUE READING
