We sought to understand the basis of performance variability and perceptual learning in saccadic visual search. Four subjects searched for a target based on its shape in a linear array of densely packed, regularly spaced items, a configuration used to simplify the analysis of performance and to minimize search strategy variability. We measured the dependence of performance-search speed-on the oculomotor variables of fixation duration and saccade amplitude, both within and across experimental… CONTINUE READING
