    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This depository contains the data from different experiments regarding the perceived speed of moving targets tracked with different oculomotor behavior.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The folders &amp;quot;Gap Paradigm&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;Step Paradigm&amp;quot; contain the main data for the manuscript. The folders &amp;quot;Vertical Offset Control&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;Awareness of Saccades&amp;quot; data from additional control experiments.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;In the folders &amp;quot;Gap Paradigm&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;Step Paradigm&amp;quot; you will find additional folders seperating the conditions for the collected data. One &amp;quot;Pilot&amp;quot; Folder contains the data used in the pilot experiment to determine the relevant eye crossing times. The &amp;quot;Speed Discrimination&amp;quot; Folder contains the files where participants made judgements about moving objects while tracking it with the eyes. In the &amp;quot;Fixation&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
