Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The fact that eye movements occur so frequently in various visual cognition tasks, such as reading and scene perception, has led a number of researchers to use the eye movement record to make inferences regarding the cognitive processes involved in such tasks. This book presents an up-to-date overview of the topic. Five sections discuss programming saccades, visual search and integration, scene perception, reading, and pictures. Each section concludes with comments which tie the chapters together. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
