Visual Search in Microscopy Implies High-Level Cognition


Analysis of visual search data suggests that the use of the microscope in the study of microanatomy is a high-level visuocognitive skill. Although the process of interpreting a microscope slide begins with perception and recognition, it quite often incorporates recall of anatomical knowledge and reasoning about the slide in the context of anatomy. Due to the system of cognitive processes in which slide interpretation takes place, patterns of visual search do not strongly differentiate better from poorer performers in general or for particular slide im-
