Abstract

The latency of saccadic eye movements evoked by the presentation of auditory and visual targets was studied while starting eye position was either 0 or 20 deg right, or 20 deg left. The results show that for any starting position the latency of visually elicited saccades increases with target eccentricity with respect to the eyes. For auditory elicited saccades and for any starting position the latency decreases with target eccentricity with respect to the eyes. Therefore auditory latency depends on a retinotopic motor error, as in the case of visual target presentation.
