The phenomenon of visual stability is classically explained by an internal forward model predicting the sensory consequences of an eye movement based on efference copy. However, this model cannot explain why some object displacements go undetected, a phenomenon that may depend on a passive prior belief that the world is stable. With reverse correlation, we investigated saccadic suppression of displacement and found that transsaccadic correspondence operates differently depending on the position of the postsaccadic visual target relative to the primary landing position; when the signal falls within the extent of primary saccadic scatter, observers are less able to remap accurately. Furthermore, we observed that the neural representations driving perceptual and saccadic decisions are similar when saccading to a target, but that the representations driving transsaccadic correspondence are different from those driving secondary saccades.
