Eye Movements During Perception of Complex Objects

  • Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we shall try to determine how the human eye examines complex objects and what principles govern this process. For example, it may seen to some people that when we examine an object we must trace its outlines with our eye and, by analogy with tactile sensation, “palpate” the object. Others may consider that, when looking at a picture, we scan the whole of its surface more or less uniformly with our eyes.
