In this manuscript, we show that movement paths vary depending on where people look when doing an obstacle avoidance task. Specifically, we found that hand movements tend to veer away from a fixated obstacle. We argue that this is likely to reflect the well-known perceptual error of overestimating the eccentricity of targets placed in visual periphery. Most interestingly, we found this even occurs in a task in which both the hand and the relevant targets are visible during movement execution.
