Abstract:

This work provides a quantitative model of saccadic suppression in which the suppression of vision is shown to result from direct interaction of the spatial and temporal properties of the human visual system. The model can be divided into a spatio-temporal impulse response function, and a psychophysical detection process. The space-time impulse response function is derived from the retinal line spread function and know temporal response characteristics of humans. By assuming linearity, the saccade like motion of a slit of light passing over the relina is convolved in two dimensions with the space-time function. Inclusion of a single threshold decision rule then allows excellent prediction of experimental results. Author
