Hi Chris!

I am trying to have a task where the monkey can saccade to one of four circles. One of the options I can code up as a target, but I am wondering what to do if I wanted to also have the other options sensitive to whether the monkey saccades to it or not. Thanks!

    Hi Mahdi,

    You can use fixation points for all four circles. You can feed them all the same eye position (via the trigger_watch_x and trigger_watch_y parameters), but each will need to use a distinct variable for trigger_flag, so that you can tell which circle the monkey is looking at. You can continue to use a single eye monitor to detect saccades.
