  • Annual review of entomology
  • 1997
The acuity of compound eyes is determined by interommatidial angles, optical quality, and rhabdom dimensions. It is also affected by light levels and speed of movement. In insects, interommatidialExpand

In what ways do eye movements contribute to everyday activities?
Two recent studies have investigated the relations of eye and hand movements in extended food preparation tasks, and here the results are compared. The tasks could be divided into a series of actionsExpand

From eye movements to actions: how batsmen hit the ball
In cricket, a batsman watches a fast bowler's ball come toward him at a high and unpredictable speed, bouncing off ground of uncertain hardness. Expand

Eye guidance in natural vision: reinterpreting salience.
Models of gaze allocation in complex scenes are derived mainly from studies of static picture viewing. The dominant framework to emerge has been image salience, where properties of the stimulus playExpand

  • 1 October 1999
Abstract Nearly all animals with good vision have a repertoire of eye movements. The majority show a pattern of stable fixations with fast saccades that shift the direction of gaze. These movementsExpand
