VISUAL CONSPICUITY AS AN EXTERNAL DETERMINANT OF EYE MOVEMENTS AND SELECTIVE ATTENTION

The investigation deals with the processes of information selection in the human visual system resulting from eye movements and focussing of attention. Visual conspicuity is defined as the degree of perceptual prominence of a visible object by virtue of sensory features such as brightness, colour, size and movement. The subject is discussed in the following chapters - visual conspicuity, directed attention and retinal locus; visual conspicuity and selective background interference in eccentric vision; and, visual conspicuity, visual search and fixation tendencies of the eye. /TRRL/
