Abstract We have modelled the effect of microsaccades on retinal responses to achromatic borders and lines using physiologically realistic parameters. Typical microsaccade movement sequences were applied to the retinal image of stationary spatial contrast patterns as projected on the foveal cone mosaic after being passed through the optical transfer function of the eye. The resulting temporal contrast modulation over a cone receptive field was convolved with an analytical expression for the response waveform of primate cones (photocurrent: [Schnapf, J. L., Nunn, B. J., Meister, M. & Baylor, D. A. (1990). Visual transduction in cones of the monkey Macaca fascicul...
