  • Summary When we look at a scene our scanning eye movements are not random [1]. Remarkably, different observers look at similar points in a given image. One explanation is that our understanding of the scene controls the paths our eyes take — so called ‘top-down' control. An alternative possibility is that the visual system uses low-level ‘bottom-up' features, such as edges, contrast or boundaries, to determine where the eyes land [2–4]. Fixated locations have been shown to contain higher values… CONTINUE READING
