Perceptual and physiological effects of fixational microsaccades
Wednesday 25th of March 2009 at 12:00pm
A large part of our visual experience is driven by the eye movements we produce while we fixate our gaze. Therefore the perception and physiology of fixational eye movements are critical to our general understanding of vision. Moreover, because we are not aware of our fixational eye movements, they can also help us understand the underpinnings of visual awareness. I will present findings on the neural activity generated by fixational microsaccades -the fastest and largest type of fixational eye movement - in visual neurons, as well as on the consequences of microsaccades for visual perception.
