Abstract and Keywords
In human vision, acuity and colour sensitivity are greatest at the point of fixation and fall off rapidly as visual eccentricity increases. What we see, remember, and understand about a scene is tightly tied to fixation. The visual-cognitive system exploits the high resolution of central vision by actively controlling eye movements to direct fixation to important and informative scene regions in real time. Therefore, how gaze control operates over complex real-world scenes is of central concern in several core cognitive science disciplines including cognitive psychology, visual neuroscience, and machine vision. This chapter reviews current approaches and empirical findings in human gaze control during real-world scene perception.
