New paper in Frontiers



We have a new paper in press at Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience.

The paper is part of a Special Research Topic on Perisaccadic Vision, hosted by the Frontiers journal. This special research topic is guest edited by Marc Zirnsak, Fred Hamker, and Tirin Moore.

In our paper, we (Hafed, Chen, and Tian) summarize our lab’s recent discoveries and thoughts on the influences of microsaccades on vision, perception, and attention. In the paper, we highlight the mechanisms of peri-microsaccadic changes in vision, and we also lay down a perspective on the potential role of microsaccades in contributing to some classic attentional effects with spatial cueing. We also describe some of the remaining frontiers for future investigations on the topic.
