  "abstract": "<p>This depository contains the data from different experiments regarding the perceived speed of moving targets tracked with different oculomotor behavior.</p>\n\n<p>The folders &quot;Gap Paradigm&quot; and &quot;Step Paradigm&quot; contain the main data for the manuscript. The folders &quot;Vertical Offset Control&quot; and &quot;Awareness of Saccades&quot; data from additional control experiments.</p>\n\n<p>In the folders &quot;Gap Paradigm&quot; and &quot;Step Paradigm&quot; you will find additional folders seperating the conditions for the collected data. One &quot;Pilot&quot; Folder contains the data used in the pilot experiment to determine the relevant eye crossing times. The &quot;Speed Discrimination&quot; Folder contains the files where participants made judgements about moving objects while tracking it with the eyes. In the &quot;Fixation&quot; folder you find the data for the fixation control where observes saw the same stimulus as during the speed discrimination task, but where not allowed to track the moving object.</p>\n\n<p>For each of the experiments we have a folder for the seperate blocks of the participant, which contains a logfile which specifys the parameters used for all trials and seperate files which contain information about the eye position during each trial.</p>\n\n<p>The structure of the eye position files is always the same: time, x-position, y-position, events marked by the eyelink. The x- and y-position are coded in pixels on the screen. The parameters specified in the log-fileare explained in an additional readme file.</p>",
