Figure 2: (a) The latency of hand blink reflex. (b) The duration of the hand blink reflex. (c) The area under the curve of the hand blink reflex. (d). The amplitude of hand blink reflex in extrapersonal space, peripersonal space-eyes open, and peripersonal space-eyes closed conditions. The latency of hand blink reflex was not statistically significantly different between peripersonal space-eyes open and extrapersonal space conditions, whereas it was significantly decreased in the peripersonal space-eye closed condition when compared with both extrapersonal space and peripersonal space-eye open conditions [Figure 2a]. The hand blink reflex duration was longer in PPS-eyes open than in extrapersonal space, but in the case of peripersonal space-eyes closed, it returned to values similar to those in extrapersonal space, i.e., as short as in extrapersonal space [Figure 2b]. The area under the curve was higher in the peripersonal space-eyes open condition than in the extrapersonal space condition, then it shrank in PPS-eyes closed but did not return to the state in extrapersonal space [Figure 2c]. There was no difference in amplitude between the peripersonal space-eyes open and peripersonal space-eyes closed conditions [Figure 2d]
