This article presents a model of reading comprehension that accounts for the allocation of eye fixations of college students reading scientific passages. The model deals with processing at the level of words, clauses, and text units. Readers make longer pauses at points where processing loads are greater. Greater loads occur while readers are accessing infrequent words, integrating information from important clauses, and making inferences at the ends of sentences. The model accounts forthe gaze… 
Cognitive Processing and Models of Reading
Reading involves the orchestration of many information-processing stages; as the eyes move across the printed page, the visual features of the text are converted into orthographic and phonological
Tracking the mind during reading: the influence of past, present, and future words on fixation durations.
TLDR
This study replicates previous effects of frequency, predictability, and length of fixated words on fixation durations in natural reading and demonstrates new effects of these variables related to 144 sentences to challenge psycholinguistic immediacy-of-processing and eye-mind assumptions.
Paradigms and processes in reading comprehension
SUMMARY This article compares several methods of presenting text, including a new paradigm that produces reading-time data with many of the characteristics of naturally occurring eye-fixation data.
A Model of the Time Course and Content of Reading
TLDR
A computer simulation of reading that is strongly driven by eye fixation data from human readers, and which uses a strategy of immediacy of comprehension, attempting to interpret each word as soon as it is encountered, rather than unnecessarily buffering information.
Regression analyses as a tool for studying reading processes: Comment on Just and Carpenters eye fixation theory
TLDR
This comment raises some statistical and theoretical problems with Just and Carpenter (1980) use of simultaneous regression analysis of gaze duration measures and with the resulting theory of reading.
