How accurate is your peripheral vision?

Being a ‘sucker’(as some here might say) for some things I tried this.

I then wanted to see if there was a connection to schizophrenia/schizoaffective. Entrez pubmed gave just two results.

As I also have Asperger’s , and can be quite curious at times , I checked on that.

Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often excel on visual search and crowding tasks; however, inconsistent findings suggest that this ‘islet of ability’ may not be characteristic of the entire spectrum. We examined whether performance on these tasks changed as a function of motor proficiency in children with varying levels of ASD symptomology. Children with high ASD symptomology outperformed all others on complex visual search tasks, but only if their motor skills were rated at, or above, age expectations. For the visual crowding task, children with high ASD symptomology and superior motor skills exhibited enhanced target discrimination, whereas those with high ASD symptomology but poor motor skills experienced deficits. These findings may resolve some of the discrepancies in the literature.

My motor skills have never been good .

Peripheral vision is full of insects, dots, black silhouettes, ghosts etc
