This study reports the outcome of a series of tests using two forms of feedback in attempts to obtain modifications of human saccadic trajectories. Modifications occur more readily when a velocity reduction, rather than an increase, is signalled. Saccadic peak velocities were reduced for large saccades with continuous feedback but not with trial by trial feedback. Some implications for models of the saccadic system are discussed.
