I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

What is the delay, or how long is the delay? I'm not certain what you are exactly interested in.

Welcome to the site Philip! We appreciate some background research on this site prior to asking a question. Next time look for some sources yourself you can describe your question in a bit more detail. I hope UV-D's answer provided you with some initial insights. Perhaps you can even ask follow up questions (in new posts) in case you don't understand anything about the given answer.

comment Articles about model of eye movements and trajectories
Could you elaborate on what you already found and where it is exactly you are stuck? We expect you to do a minimum level of research prior to asking a question. Apparently you already googled a bit, update your question to reflect what you learned from that, and what you don't understand. As it stands now answering the question would constitute summing up all related literature which would not only be near impossible, but also won't help you out that much.

Welcome to CogSci! I edited your question a bit to reflect what I think you intended to write down. In case the edit misrepresents your original question, feel free to roll back to the original.

@JeromyAnglim By all means, if you think your answer here doesn't answer my question which I thought was a duplicate, reopen and answer it!

I particularly believe Mien's answer to be a more plausible answer now. Would be worthwhile investigating more into. Similar to Jeff's explanation, but then applied to muscle memory.
