Saccades can be identical according to endpoint, amplitude, and velocity, although saccades exhibit a stereotyped relation between amplitude and velocity (Becker 1989). Much evidence supports this proposition for saccade execution. , Sylvestre & Cullen 1999). However, it seems clear that the innervation that moves and holds the eyes is the result of a population of neurons with less collective variability. Differences in the pattern and degree of burst, tonic, and motor neuron discharge translate immediately into different muscle contractions and so to different eye movements.

Saccades can be identical according to endpoint, amplitude, and velocity, although saccades exhibit a stereotyped relation between amplitude and velocity (Becker 1989). Much evidence supports this proposition for saccade execution. , Sylvestre & Cullen 1999). However, it seems clear that the innervation that moves and holds the eyes is the result of a population of neurons with less collective variability.

While the endpoints of repetitive saccades exhibit some scatter, the quantitative characteristics of this scatter suggest that it originates in random variation of activation within the motor map of superior colliculus (van Opstal & van Gisbergen 1989). The identity between the timing of neural discharge and the initiation of a saccade entails certain complexities. First, the original analyses measured the threshold as the mean discharge rate across the sets of trials with particular reaction times.
