The role of fixational eye movements in spatial vision
Even when we gaze intently at a point, our eyes continue to make small, largely involuntary eye movements. The role of these eye movements have been debated for many decades, and continue to be the topic of active research in the literature. In this project we examine the role of fixational eye movements, and the perceptual mechanisms that correct for them, in tasks that require fine spatial judgments.
