The new semester at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is just around the corner. Time to take a quick look at last summer. There are a number of new papers from the lab. Richard and Martin have published two.
If you are interested in an fast algorithm to display gaze-contingent stimuli, then the following paper will be yours:
Schweitzer, R. & Rolfs, M. (2019). An adaptive algorithm for fast and reliable online saccade detection. Behavior Research Methods, in press. [preprint]
For technical tinkerers, and visual artists there is also something here — a cool, low-cost setup where words and images are only visible during saccades. Richard and Martin presented a demo of it at VSS in May:
Schweitzer, R., Watson, T.L., Watson, J., & Rolfs, M. (2019). The joy of retinal painting: A build-it-yourself device for intrasaccadic presentations. Perception, 48, 1020-1025. [pdf]
For the mathematically interested reader or those interested in sensorimotor learning, we have developed a new computational model for (sinusoidal) saccadic adaptation:
Cassanello, C. R., Ostendorf, F., & Rolfs, M. (2019). A generative learning model for saccade adaptation. PLoS Computational Biology, 15(8), e1006695.
Finally, Martin’s collaborations with labs in the US have led to new publications, one on predictive ocular following and a review on corollary discharge deficits in schizophrenia:
Kwon, S., Rolfs, M., Mitchel, J. F. (2019). Pre-saccadic motion integration drives a predictive post-saccadic following response. Journal of Vision, in press. [pdf]
Thakkar, K.N. & Rolfs, M. (2019). Disrupted corollary discharge in schizophrenia: evidence from the oculomotor system. Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging, 4, 773-781. [pdf]
