The aim of this study was to determine the pattern of fixations during the performance of a well-learned task in a natural setting (making tea), and to classify the types of monitoring action that the eyes perform. We used a head-mounted eye-movement video camera, which provided a continuous view of the scene ahead, with a dot indicating foveal direction(More)
We examined eye movements in a patient, FK, who has action disorganisation syndrome (ADS), as he performed the everyday task of making a cup of tea. We compared his eye movements with those of a person with Alzheimer's disease and with healthy volunteers. Despite showing very disorganised behaviour many aspects of FK's eye movements were relatively normal.(More)
OBJECTIVE The acute nootropic potential of donepezil in young healthy volunteers has not been adequately investigated mainly because in previous studies: (1) effects were assessed before peak-plasma concentration (Tmax) was reached; (2) only a few cognitive processes were assessed. Here we investigated a myriad of cognitive effects of augmentation of(More)
What effect may an unattended word have during a single fixation? Attention was selectively directed to a word exposed for 50 ms by the demand to make a rapid lexical decision response, and during the same presentation a second word was displayed approximately 2.3 deg of visual angle away on the same horizontal axis. The second word was backwards and(More)
Until relatively recently a popular assumption in the literature was that the visual system constructed a richly detailed reconstruction of visual surroundings (eg Marr 1982), integrating information from multiple fixations (eg McConkie and Rayner 1976). However, evidence began to emerge in the 1970s and 1980s that cast doubt upon this intuitively appealing(More)
