Oculomotor decision making can be investigated by a simple step task, where a person decides whether a target has jumped to the left or the right. More complex tasks include the countermanding task (look at the jumped target, except when a subsequent signal instructs you not to) and the Wheeless task (where the jumped target sometimes then quickly jumps to a new location). Different instantiations of the LATER (Linear Approach to Threshold with Ergodic Rate) model have been shown to explain the saccadic latency data arising from these tasks, despite it being almost inconceivable that completely separate decision-making mechanisms exist for each. However, these models have an identical constr..View full abstract
