Abstract : This report describes ongoing work on the influence of the oculomotor systems upon visual perception. Three different problems are being considered: (1) Saccadic suppression, (2) Size-scaling, and (3) The 'corridor' illusion. Of particular interest is whether or not efferent or outflow mechanisms play a significant role in these perceptual phenomena. A 'perspective' illusion of depth has been examined in order to show that planar illusions involve mechanisms different from those underlying size/depth invariances. (Author)
