Executive deficits detected in mild Alzheimer's disease using the antisaccade
Effects of anxiety on task switching: Evidence from the mixed antisaccade
Munoz & Stefan Everling, Look Away: The AntiSaccade
Task and the Voluntary Control of Eye Movement, 5 NATURE REV.
After the 10-minute period, participants' brainpower was rated using eye-tracking equipment that measured reaction times to an eye movement task (the antisaccade
task: completion of a nonstandard task).
Comparing the activation in a stop signal, Go/NoGo, and antisaccade
paradigm, pre-SMA and different regions of IFC are activated, but still they are related to an activation of rIFG .
In addition to this, PD may impair response inhibition, an integral element of impulsivity, with PD patients performing worse on a range of measures of inhibition, including the Stop-Signal Task [4, 5], Go/No-Go , and antisaccade
For example, SEM abnormalities have been encountered in Multiple System Atrophy, such as slower prosaccade and increased antisaccade
Attention orienting and inhibitory control across the different mood states in bipolar disorder: an emotional antisaccade
performance is impaired in medically and psychiatrically healthy biological relatives of schizophrenia patients.
Compensatory effects on the functional level of the SC mediated by the substantia nigra pars reticulata have been reported  yielding improved saccade initiation and inhibitory control but did not significantly prevent prosaccades during antisaccade
It was found that proactive interference affected low-span participants more than high-span (Kane & Engle, 2000), high-span participants were less vulnerable than low-span to salient distractors in a dichotic listening task (Conway, Cowan, & Bunting, 2001), high-span identified antisaccade
targets faster than low-span in a antisaccade
task (Kane, Bleckley, Conway, & Engle, 2001) and high-span were faster or less error prone than low-span in a Stroop task (Kane & Engle, 2003; Long & Prat, 2002).
An appropriate distractor is the antisaccade
task [Hallet 1978].
