Abstract

We acknowledge the earlier work cited by Ditchburn in his comment ( R. W. Ditchburn, J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 4, 405– 406 ( 1987).] and point out a crucial difference between that work and our novel approach [ L. E. Arend and G. T. Timberlake, J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 3, 235 ( 1986)]. Our procedure provides measurements uncontaminated by residual errors of stabilization. The visual system’s extreme sensitivity to small temporal changes and the indirectness of the evidence cited by Ditchburn leave the meaning of stabilized-image reappearance unclear.
