Floating-Gate Circuits for Adaptation of Saccadic Eye Movement Accuracy
The most common eye movements in primates are the quick reorienting movements known as saccades. Our eyes often reach speeds up to 750 degs/s during a saccade which severely impairs our visual acuity. It is therefore important to minimize the time during which the eyes are moving. While typical human saccades have a duration of 40ms to 150 ms, changes in the optics, the oculomotor plant, or the underlying neural circuitry can cause deficits which delay optimal viewing conditions.
