A new eye movement phenomenon
Together with Tatiana Malevich and Ziad Hafed, we documented a new eye movement phenomenon in which oculomotor drift (the small variation in eye gaze position happening between each eye movement) is strongly and rapidly modulated by the appearance of a visual stimulus.
This work shows that the oculomotor system can centrally control with high precision and temporal resolution eye movement behavior at its smallest range (just a few minutes of arc, one order of magnitude smaller than a microsaccade!). The neurophysiology of this new eye movement phenomenon is still unknown and we are now working to describe it.
The paper is now available on eLife at this link.
