Table 2 Saccade accuracy and latencies for participants with ASD and healthy controls

From: Saccadic eye movement abnormalities in autism spectrum disorder indicate dysfunctions in cerebellum and brainstem

  ASD Control

20 deg 2.40 (0.72)*** 1.86 (0.11)
30 deg 3.33 (1.12)** 2.60 (0.17)
Trial-wise variability (SD) of saccade error (absolute value in degrees)
10 deg 1.11 (0.37) 1.03 (0.37)
20 deg 1.90 (0.58)*** 1.31 (0.58)
