Saccade

Indices : Terminology : Saccade

Saccades are fast, frequent and irregular eye movements which progresses the eye from one reading position to the next.

Saccades have been recorded at up to 500 degrees per second. At this speed, visual input is reduced and no information is processed.

A saccade is proceeded by a fixation during which information is processed in the fovea.
