Recently, we found that the extent of perceived motion smear is reduced even when a smooth movement of the eye is produced by pressing on the globe, implicating a contribution from signals of eye muscle proprioception. The reduction of perceived motion smear during normal eye movements is asymmetrical, depending on the relative direction of target motion with respect to the moving eye. 3 The median duration of perceived motion smear produced by a 100-millisecond bright spot is shown during the leftward and rightward slow-phase IN eye movements of subject SS.
