The rhythm of the eyes: overt and covert attentional pointing

Findlay, J.M., Brown, V. and Gilchrist, I.D. (1997) The rhythm of the eyes: overt and covert attentional pointing Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 20, (4), p.747.

Record type: Article


This commentary centres around the system of human visual attention. Although generally supportive of the position advocated in the target article, we suggest that the detailed account overestimates the capacities of active human vision. Limitations of peripheral search and saccadic accuracy are discussed in relation to the division of labour between covert and overt attentional processes.
