European conference on eye movements 2017

We are participating in this year’s European Conference on Eye Movements, which is taking place in Wuppertal, Germany. Antimo is presenting new results on smooth pursuit eye movements, and how they may be affected by visual transients. In his experiments, Antimo is finding that smooth pursuit initiation is affected in a transient inhibitory manner if[…]

Microsaccades reset alpha and beta rhythms

We have a new exciting article in press at the Journal of Neurophysiology. In this article, we discovered an intriguing property related to microsaccades, the tiny eye movements that take place during gaze fixation. We found that after microsaccades are generated by the oculomotor system, behavioral visual performance (e.g. stimulus detection efficiency) does not return[…]
