It should be noted, however, that the saccade rate (50 steps per minute) was considerably slower than that of normal scanning. This work, together with that of Zingale and Kowler (1987) and He and Kowler (1989) already mentioned, is critical of an approach that treats saccades as reflex-like movements. This criticism provides a valuable corrective to the view that saccades are under the control of stimulus factors alone, although it is not clear that such a view is widely held. However, the polemic nature of the arguments may serve to obscure the fact that few workers believe the distinction between reflexive and voluntary saccades is an absolute one.
