Abstract : Eye movements determine the location and velocity of the retinal image. Thus, to understand how we see it is necessary to understand both how eye movements are controlled and how they affect visual information processing. The proposed research is concerned with both problems, specifically: (1) the effect of expectations on smooth eye movements; (2) the effect of saccades and saccade-like stimulus perturbations on visual information processing; and (3) programming sequences of saccades.
