Human eyes never stop moving, despite our subjective experience to the contrary. Even when we attempt to anchor our eyes to an object or feature of interest, we still produce so called ‘fixational’ eye movements, namely microsaccades, drift and tremor. In recent years, microsaccade research has become a mainstay of oculomotor and visual neuroscience, with important implications for basic research, the understanding of various clinical conditions, and for the replication of studies conducted in circumstances in which microsaccades occur. In this talk I will discuss some of the consequences of making (and not making) microsaccades in a variety of visual tasks and environments, as well as some of the pathologies that affect microsaccades, with the aim of developing an integrative framework of microsaccadic function.
