Abstract

Ziad Hafed will review how an observation about fixational eye movements, first described about 20 years ago, led to a series of studies exploring the brain circuits that control both attention and saccades. We now have a much deeper understanding of the underlying roots and implications of the correlation between attention and microsaccades, the role of subcortical and cortical visual structures in this process, and the importance of approaching vision from an active, rather than passive, perspective.
