The eyes have it! Reflexive orienting is triggered by nonpredictive gaze
Normal subjects were presented with a simple line drawing of a face looking left, right, or straight ahead. A target letter F or T then appeared to the left or the right of the face. All subjectsExpand

Attentional effects of counterpredictive gaze and arrow cues.
The authors used counterpredictive cues to examine reflexive and volitional orienting to eyes and arrows. Experiment 1 investigated the effects of eyes with a novel design that allowed for aExpand

Are eyes special? It depends on how you look at it
Recent behavioral data have shown that central nonpredictive gaze direction triggers reflexive shifts of attention toward the gazed-at location (e.g., Friesen & Kingstone, 1998). Friesen andExpand

Visual offsets facilitate saccadic latency: Does predisengagement of visuospatial attention mediate this gap effect?
Saccadic reaction time (RT) is reduced when a fixation stimulus is extinguished 200 ms before a target appears. An attentional predisengagement theory (APT) may explain this gap effect: When covertExpand

Auditory capture of vision: examining temporal ventriloquism.
Four experiments investigated whether irrelevant sounds can influence the perception of lights in a visual temporal order judgment task, where participants judged which of two lights appeared first.Expand

The where, what and when of gaze allocation in the lab and the natural environment
How do people distribute their visual attention in the natural environment? We and our colleagues have usually addressed this question by showing pictures, photographs or videos of natural scenesExpand

Eyes are special but not for everyone: the case of autism.
Current research indicates that human gaze direction is a special cue for shifting attention for one of two reasons: (1) it reflects social desires and intentions and (2) its basic perceptualExpand

Look away! Eyes and arrows engage oculomotor responses automatically
The present study investigates how people’s voluntary saccades are influenced by where another person is looking, even when this is counterpredictive of the intended saccade direction. The color of aExpand
