As part of an investigation into real-world drawing, eye movements and eye-hand interactions have been recorded for twenty subjects of varying drawing experience drawing simple straight and curved lines and a square. Two modes of eye-hand behaviour were observed. In the first, named 'close pursuit', fixations closely followed the pencil with a sequence of(More)

We are grateful to Angie Brew for help with conducting the tests, Jem McKay for help with the figures and Tyler Freeman for helpful discussions and comments. Abstract Alternating the point of gaze between an original (model or sitter, object or scene) and a picture (paper, canvas or digital touch screen) is the(More)
We report a functional imaging study of drawing cartoon faces. Normal, untrained participants were scanned while viewing simple black and white cartoon line drawings of human faces, retaining them for a short memory interval, and then drawing them without vision of their hand or the paper. Specific encoding and retention of information about the faces were(More)
To copy a natural visual image as a line drawing, visual identification and extraction of features in the image must be guided by top-down decisions, and is usually influenced by prior knowledge. In parallel with other behavioral studies testing the relationship between eye and hand movements when drawing, we report here a functional brain imaging study in(More)
