Saccadic modulation of neural responses: Possible roles in Saccadic suppression, Enhancement and Time Compression

Ibbotson, Michael; Crowder, Nathan; Cloherty, Shaun; Price, Nicholas; Mustari, Michael J


Humans use saccadic eye movements to make frequent gaze changes, yet the associated full-field image motion is not perceived. The theory of saccadic suppression has been proposed to account for this phenomenon, but it is not clear whether suppression originates from a retinal signal at saccade onset or from the brain before saccade onset. Perceptually, visual sensitivity is reduced before saccades and enhanced afterward. Over the same time period, the perception of time is compressed and even...[Show more]
