Abstract and Keywords

Despite stability in its global structure, the visual world is dynamic with respect to its local composition. Detection and appreciation of local changes to an environment are therefore important to a variety of visually-guided behaviours. In this chapter, we summarize how eye movements reveal both the failures and successes of change detection while we view our world. In terms of mechanisms, we consider the roles of low-level visual information, online scene memory, and long-term memory in change detection. Reciprocally, we describe the impact that change detection research has had on theory regarding these mechanisms.

Keywords: eye movements, change detection, scene memory, visual disruptions, low-level visual information
