New paper on the relation between motion extrapolation for eye movements and perceived position shifts

We are happy to announce the publication of a new paper in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Effective action in the presence of moving stimuli requires a prediction of their motion trajectory. To investigate the link between motion extrapolation for oculomotor programming and the perception of target position, we used the flash-grab effect to induce illusory position shifts of briefly flashed targets. We found a correlation between trial-by-trial saccade latencies and saccade landing position. Moreover, individual saccade latencies predicted perceived position shifts. These findings challenge the classic dissociation between “vision for action” and “vision for perception”. We are excited about this work and will follow up with more work on the relation between eye movements and the perception of motion.
