Abstract : The central goal of the project funded by the current grant is the understanding of how saccadic eye movements are used to accurately localize objects in space. Explaining accurate localization is a real problem because the objects we choose to look at are relatively large -- typically extending over several degrees of space -- but the saccadic eye movement must land at one place within the target. Our published research suggests that the computation requires a sequence of two stages: (1) voluntary attentional weighting of information in the visual display, and (2) automatic-spatial-pooling of the weighted formation (He and Kowler, 1989; 1991).
