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 sizedepth invariances. Author
