Abstract

Saccadic eye movements to spatial locations are preceded by attentional shifts which enhance perception at the selected location relative to other locations. This link between action preparation and perception is thought to be mediated in part by the frontal eye fields. We examined pre-saccadic attention at different ages to ascertain the role of frontal cortex maturation on the expression of the pre-saccadic perceptual enhancement. We replicated the oft-reported pre-saccadic perceptual enhancement in adults, examined it in adolescents, and used a modified version of the paradigm to test perception during saccade preparation in 10-month-old infants.
