Answer & Explanation

When von Holst asked a temporarily paralyzed person (with curare) to move his eyes, the subject reported (once recovered) that the world appeared as if it was ‘glued to my eyes’. Why? Because there is no perception of movement in paralyzed people, and central coordination is altered The brain anticipates the eye movement, and preemptively “moves” the mental image so as to stabilize the visual perception Because of the opto-kinetic effect The eyes are not really moving so reflexes cannot explain this effect, therefore, Skinner was wrong
