Example text

In everyday viewing, objects that are stationary in space generate “opposite” motion during eye movements and therefore should be perceived as relatively clear. 70-72 The observation that perceived motion smear is reduced during normal head movements raises the possibility that extraretinal signals associated with these head movements in subjects with IN might supplement the effect of extraretinal eye movement signals to further reduce the extent of perceived motion smear. The results we obtained during passive eye rotation indicate that extraretinal signals from eye muscle proprioception are sufficient to reduce the extent of perceived motion smear in normal observers.

Consistent with the results described for normal observers, the extent of perceived motion smear is reduced asymmetrically in this subject with IN—it is less when relative target motion is to the left during rightward slow phases and when relative target motion is to the right during leftward slow phases (Fig. 3). 3 expresses the extent of perceived motion smear as duration in milliseconds. The average duration of perceived motion smear for targets that move in the “same” direction as the leftward and rightward IN slow-phase eye movements is approximately 105 milliseconds, indicating no reduction in the extent of perceived smear.

During pursuit, the physical drift rate of the grating was varied to generate retinal temporal frequencies between 6 and 30 Hz, both in the “opposite” and “same” directions as the observers’ rightward pursuit movement. Each presentation of the grating target occurred within a smoothed temporal contrast window with a duration of approximately 400 milliseconds. Horizontal eye movements were monitored by infrared limbal reflection, and trials were accepted in the absence of blinks or saccades and only if the calculated temporal frequency of retinal image motion was within ±15% of the grating’s nominal temporal frequency.
