Manipulation of stimulus onset delay in reading: Evidence for parallel programming of saccades.
The purpose of this investigation was to examine whether endogenous saccades are preceded by shifts of attention utilizing a modified pre-cuing paradigm.
Actually, several studies have paid attention to the number of saccades occurring during search and their fixation durations (Engel, 1977; Gould & Dill, 1969; Luria & Strauss, 1975; Megaw & Richardson, 1979; Scinto, Pillalamarri, & Karsh, 1986).
Saccades generally take only 25-30 milliseconds and move the eye from one fixation to the next.
The Red (Koronan) forces fielded an eclectic mix of simulated hardware, including F-4s, F-5s, F-14s, Mirage F-Is, Chinese-made F-7s, MIG-23s, MIG-25s, SU-24s, TU-16s and a host of cruise and ballistic missiles--Frogs, Seersuckers, Saccades and Nodongs.
A prosaccade set (10 trials) required the subject to make saccades left or right toward a visual target, presented in randomized order.
the top speed of the saccades for shifting viewing direction should limit delay times to a few tenths of a second (as with the human eye).
These rapid eye movements, called saccades (from an old French word meaning "the flick of a sail"), help point the fovea at areas of importance.
Morris's paintings feel as if he was trying to depict the images left on the retina by the way the eye performs saccades from point to point of the visual field.
In addition, labeling of the oculomotor nucleus with horseradish peroxidase conjugates failed to demonstrate the existence of other afferent projections from the hindbrain (8), such as the excitatory abducens internuclear neurons (Abd Int) and prepositus neurons, both of which are essential for achieving symmetric conjugate horizontal motion of both eyes during saccades, fixation, and visual tracking (12-15).
Time in a print zone: The total amount of time the child's eye-gaze spends in a print zone, encompassing both saccades and fixations.
