Previous research has shown that accurate stepping involves the fixation of gaze on the intended step location. One possible explanation for this visual strategy is that the fixation of locations that are eccentric relative to the step target, results in systematic localization errors, as has previously been demonstrated in pointing. To test this idea, we assessed the possible role of gaze stabilization in the spatial planning of accurate steps, and determined whether the direction of… CONTINUE READING
