In press: Spotlight on Remapping attention pointers

Because the eyes move, the correspondence between each location in the world and each location on the retina is arbitrary. From one fixation to the next, each object changes places on the retina. Both psychophysical and neurophysiological studies aim to better understand how we keep track of locations as the eyes move about. Yet the links between neural and behavioral findings remain obscure. Inspired by new neurophysiological findings on trans-saccadic updating of visual responses in areas V4 and MT, Martin Szinte and I have put together a Spotlight article (to appear in Trends in Cognitive Sciences), in which we discuss possible links between physiological and behavioral evidence for remapping. Their findings, we argue, shed light onto the role of attention in the continuity of perception across saccades.
