Visual perception involves both the high acuity of foveal vision and the wide scope of overlapping peripheral information. The role of peripheral vision in competent performance of the adult visuomotor activities of walking, reaching, and forming a cognitive map of a room was examined using goggles which limited the scope of the normal field of view to 9°, 14°, 22°, or 60°. Each restriction of peripheral field information resulted in some perceptual and performance decrements, with the 9° and… Expand
