Saccadic suppression of low-level motion.

Isolated motion mechanisms to study the influence of saccades on motion perception in the absence of other cues for detecting the displacement of images, such as the position of a target relative to the surround or to the observer's head. The authors served as observers and could not identify the direction of motion of random dots moved within a stationary frame, if the displacement occurred during a saccade. This suppression also occurred when the displacement of the random dots was less than D-sub(max ) in retinal coordinates and even when the saccade was embedded in a slightly longer blank interstimulus interval.
