The Effect of Saccadic sequences and Remapping on the Pupillary Light Response

Student: Vladimir Mikheev

Supervisor: W.Joseph MacInnes

Faculty: Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience

Educational Programme: Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: From Neuron to Cognition (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

In this study, we assess a relationship between the deployment of attention and change of pupil size during a saccade. In our experiment we simulated the attention split during initiation of double-step saccade: location of future saccade target and retinotopic location of second saccade target also known as the remapped area (Rolfs et al., 2011). Two attended locations obtained an opposing luminance. Attention deployed simultaneously to different locations integrates features of these locations (Golomb, 2019). We expect that two attended regions with opposing luminance could affect the curve of the pupillary light response.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.

Student theses are objects of copyright and their use is subject to limitations in accordance with the Russian Federation’s law on intellectual property.
