Voluntary action expands perceived duration of its sensory consequence

The results indicate that the illusion of chronostasis is not specific to saccadic eye movement, and may therefore involve a more general mechanism of how voluntary action influences time perception.

The role of action intentionality and effector in the subjective expansion of temporal duration after saccadic eye movements

The findings suggest that saccadic chronostasis is not solely dependent on a backward shift in perceived saccade onset, but instead reflects a temporal dilation.

Greater magnocellular saccadic suppression in high versus low autistic tendency suggests a causal path to local perceptual style

It is shown that individuals with high autistic tendency show greater saccadic suppression of low versus high spatial frequency gratings while those with low autistic tendency do not, and the magnocellular theory of saccade suppression appears untenable as a general description for the typically developing population.

The perception of timescales in electroacoustic music

The purpose of this doctoral research is to explore the nature and perception of timescales in electroacoustic music, to examine modes of experiencing time, and to discover a method that uses this

Identification of a Functional Link for the p53 Tumor Suppressor Protein in Dexamethasone-induced Growth Suppression*

The development of chimeric antisense oligonucleotides that potently inhibit human p53 expression is described, indicating that the basal expression of p53 plays a functional role in a glucocorticoid receptor-mediated response regulating theexpression of p21Waf1/Cip1 via a mechanism that is suppressed by PP5 and associated with the phosphorylation of p 53 at Ser-15.

Consciousness as a Memory System.

It is suggested that episodic memory and its associated memory systems of sensory, working, and semantic memory as a whole ought to be considered together as the conscious memory system in that they, together, give rise to the phenomenon of consciousness.



Visual Perception of Direction for Stimuli Flashed During Voluntary Saccadic Eye Movements

Evidence was obtained for precisely timed shifts in local signs which are due to proprioceptive compensation for changes in ocular position during the saccade.

Illusory perceptions of space and time preserve cross-saccadic perceptual continuity

It is suggested that temporal extension of the target's percept is one of the mechanisms that ‘fill in’ the perceptual ‘gap’ during saccadic suppression.

Changes in visual perception at the time of saccades

Eye Movements and Perceived Visual Direction

The implicit assumption that visual perception is not susceptible to influences from extraretinal sources1 has held extremely well in the areas of color vision, contour perception, and intensity

Compression of visual space before saccades

It is shown that changes in apparent visual direction anticipate saccades and are not of the same size, or even in the same direction, for all parts of the visual field and there is a compression of visual space sufficient to reduce the spacing and even the apparent number of pattern elements.

Selective suppression of the magnocellular visual pathway during saccadic eye movements

Evidence is presented that saccadic suppression does occur, but that it is selective for patterns modulated in luminance at low spatial frequencies, and patterns of higher spatial frequency were not suppressed during saccades, but actually enhanced.

Visual attention: Insights from brain imaging

It is shown that functional neuroimaging is revealing much more than where attention happens in the brain; it is beginning to answer some of the oldest and deepest questions about what visual attention is and how it works.

Visual perception during eye movement

A rapid technique to assess the resting states of the eyes and other threshold phenomena: The Modified Binary Search (MOBS)

Monte Carlo simulations indicate that the MOBS procedure provides more precise measures with fewer stimulus presentations than conventional staircases and is also relatively insensitive to response errors.
