Abstract : The standard displacement step stimulus often used to produce lateral saccadic eye movements is considered in terms of the effects of its components: termination of stimulation at an initial fixation point, and onset of stimulation at a new, laterally displaced fixation point. If the termination and onset are simultaneous, saccade latency is about 200. msec. If there is a gap of 200. msec. or more between these events, latency decreases to about 150. msec. If the termination follows the onset by 100. msec. or more, latency increases to about 250. msec. (Author)
