Scanning of the visual scene is an important selective process in visual perception. In this article we argue that eye-movement data provide an excellent on-line indication of the cognitive processes underlying visual search and reading. We outline some recent advances from physiological investigations of saccadic eye-movement control before focusing on eye-movement behaviour in visual search and reading studies. We consider factors that can affect the duration of fixations and the choice of… CONTINUE READING
