Abstract and Keywords

Microsaccades are the largest and fastest of the fixational eye movements (i.e. the involuntary eye movements produced during attempted visual fixation). In recent years, the study of microsaccades has experienced a very rapid growth as a focus of visual and oculomotor research. Here we review the latest findings in microsaccade research, paying special attention to the perceptual, cognitive, and physiological effects of microsaccades and their interactions.

Keywords: microsaccades, cognitive effects, lateral geniculate nucleus, ophthalmic disease, oculomotor research
