Abstract.Saccadic eye movements made to remembered locations in the dark show a distinct up-shift in macaque monkey, and slight upward bias in humans (Gnadt et al. 1991). This upward bias created in the visual spatial mapping of a saccade may be translated downstream in a hand/touch movement. This error could possibly reveal (a) information about the frames of reference used in each scenario and (b) the sources of this error within the brain. This would suggest an early planning stage if they… CONTINUE READING
