ScanMatch: A novel method for comparing fixation sequences
We present a novel approach to comparing saccadic eye movement sequences based on the Needleman-Wunsch algorithm used in bioinformatics to compare DNA sequences. Expand

Pupils respond to three distinct kinds of stimuli: they constrict in response to brightness (the pupil light response), constrict in response to near fixation (the pupil near response), and dilate inExpand

PyGaze: An open-source, cross-platform toolbox for minimal-effort programming of eyetracking experiments
The PyGaze toolbox is an open-source software package for Python, a high-level programming language. Expand

Safe and sensible preprocessing and baseline correction of pupil-size data
We show that baseline correction can distort data if unrealistically small pupil sizes are recorded during the baseline period, which can easily occur due to eye blinks, data loss, or other distortions. Expand

Evidence for the predictive remapping of visual attention
When attending an object in visual space, perception of the object remains stable despite frequent eye movements. It is assumed that visual stability is due to the process of remapping, in whichExpand

Gradual Remapping Results in Early Retinotopic and Late Spatiotopic Inhibition of Return
Here we report that immediately following the execution of an eye movement, oculomotor inhibition of return resides in retinotopic (eye-centered) coordinates. At longer postsaccadic intervals,Expand

In the present review, we address the relationship between attention and visual stability. Even though with each eye, head and body movement the retinal image changes dramatically, we perceive theExpand

The Pupillary Light Response Reveals the Focus of Covert Visual Attention
The pupillary light response is often assumed to be a reflex that is not susceptible to cognitive influences. In line with recent converging evidence, we show that this reflexive view is incomplete,Expand

A reinvestigation of the reference frame of the tilt-adaptation aftereffect
We report that TAE is exclusively retinotopic (world centred): It occurs when adapter and tester are presented at the same display location, even when this corresponds to different retinal locations. Expand
