Dual task interference may only be measurable when the task is more difficult (see McPeek et al. 1999). Klein does not deny that under normal circumstances the processes of generating a saccade and shifting covert attention will occur together or that the two systems are related. His claim is simply that the two responses are not the differential manifestations of the same system. Endogenous covert orienting is accomplished independently of eye-movement programming. Remington (1980) also argued for a loose relationship between an attentional and saccade system, suggesting that the saccadic system and the attentional system are both drawn concurrently to peripheral events, but by different mechanisms.
