Recent models have placed the superior colliculus inside the local feedback loop that generates the pulse of innervation needed to make a saccade. Such closed-loop models need to take into account the different coordinate systems of visual and motor signals. This paper presents a computational model showing how the superior colliculus can bring the visual and motor information together in a common reference frame.
