Abstract:

It is shown that the most commonly accepted version of the extraretinal signal leads to a paradox. A possible resolution of this paradox is presented. It was also found that a moving stimulus which is present for a portion of a saccade and which moves at approximately the same velocity as the eyes will, in most cases, not produce any disorientation. However, it will lead to an erroneous perception of that stimulus.
