Can parallel processing and competitive inhibition explain the generation of saccades?

  • M. A. Frens (a1), I. T. C. Hooge (a1) and H. H. L. M. Goossens (a1)
Abstract

The framework of Findlay & Walker's target article provides a first attempt to model the saccadic system at all levels. Their scheme is based on two main principles. These are “parallel processing of saccade timing and metrics” and “competitive inhibition through winner-take-all strategies.” In our opinion, however, both concepts are in their strictest sense at odds with the current knowledge of the saccadic system, and need to be refined to make the scheme more relevant.
