Abstract

Previous studies showed that the relation for product of peak velocity and duration against saccadic amplitude was highly linear correlated. The velocity profile was related as a triangular profile and referred to the saccadic amplitude as an integration of the profile, so that the amplitude is proportional to the product of peak velocity and duration. The saccadic amplitude can be described as a function of peak velocity and duration. In this study, in addition to the triangular profile, the rational power function was applied to explain the above linear relation. The acceleration and deceleration phases can be described, respectively, with the different shape parameters (n1 and n2). Finally, we described the product of peak velocity and acceleration time relating to the acceleration amplitude, and the product of peak velocity and deceleration time relating to the deceleration amplitude. The results show that the acceleration and deceleration phase parameters could be used to accurately delineate the saccadic characteristics.
