Eye position affects the perceived location of touch.
Here, we demonstrate a systematic shift in the perceived location of a tactile stimulus on the arm toward where the eye is looking. Participants reported the perceived position of touches presented between the elbow and the wrist while maintaining eye positions at various eccentricities. The perceived location of the touch was shifted by between 1 and 5 cm (1.9 degrees -9.5 degrees visual angle) by a change in eye position of +/-25 degrees from straight ahead. In a control condition, we repea...Expand abstract
