    Ronen Segev
    Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
    J Neurophysiol 98:1380-91. 2007
    ..Our results support the view that saccades impose not just difficulties for the visual system, but also an opportunity for the retina to encode high quality "snapshots" of the environment...
