In nine naïve subjects eye movements were recorded while subjects viewed and visualized four irregularly-checkered diagrams. Scanpaths, defined as repetitive sequences of fixations and saccades were found during visual imagery and viewing. Positions of fixations were distributed according to the spatial arrangement of subfeatures in the diagrams. For a(More)
Infrared oculographic recordings from three patients with hemianopia due to an occipital lesion showed that these patients employed a consistent set of (presumably unconscious) compensatory strategies to find and fixate objects. For targets in the blind hemifield, patients at first used a staircase strategy consisting of a series of stepwise saccadic search(More)
ÐMany machine vision applications, such as compression, pictorial database querying, and image understanding, often need to analyze in detail only a representative subset of the image, which may be arranged into sequences of loci called regions-of-interest, ROIs. We have investigated and developed a methodology that serves to automatically identify such a(More)
The horizontal and vertical components of oblique saccadic eye movements are not always tightly crosslinked; often they are completely independent. Most of the time the two components do not start and end simultaneously. The neurological bursting and pausing of the extraocular motoneurons that underlie the generation of these oblique movements will,(More)
Three structurally different types of models have evolved over the years to describe muscle-joint systems. The first, based on an input-output analysis of a given task, results in a simple second-order differential equation description that is adequate over a certain movement operating range. The second, based on the classic structural model of Hill (1938),(More)
Scanpaths, the repetitive sequences of saccadic eye movements, occurred when subjects viewed slide projections of both realistic and abstract art. Variance analysis demonstrated that global/local eye movement indices were lower for local scanning by professional art viewers who relied on more global viewing, particularly in abstract images.(More)
