Schematic diagrams showing how the spatially distributed inter-postsynaptic functional LINKs enable perception of a moving object. a When the object moves at farther distances, the image falls on one end of the retina and moves along to the other end. This will lead to change in the locations where the activity reaches at the cortex, which is represented by a rectangular shaped area. The perceptons change their locations of formation as the object moves towards the right side. As the locations of formation of perceptons reach the end of the cortical field (represented by the right side of the rectangle), the smooth pursuit moves the eyeball slowly to the right side bringing the stimuli to arrive within the visual cortices. b When either the object moves very fast or the moving object is close to the eye, the perceptons formed when the inputs reactivate the inter-postsynaptic functional LINKs from its both sides become homogeneous by moving the eyeball quickly in a jumping (saccadic) manner
