Eye Movements and Scene Memory

Eye Movements and Scene Memory

(p.87) Chapter 4 Eye Movements and Scene Memory
Visual Memory

John M. Henderson

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the evidence supporting the view that representations are retained and combined across eye movements and over extended time. In particular, it considers representations that are generated over three time periods: across fixations (transsaccadic memory), over multiple fixation-saccade cycles (active online scene memory), and over the longer term (long-term scene memory). It highlights recent experiments on saccadic eye movements and visual memory. It argues that a composite scene representation that includes relatively detailed (although not sensory or iconic) visual information is generated and retained in memory across eye movements and over time as a natural consequence of active, dynamic scene perception.

Keywords:   representations, fixations, transsaccadic memory, active online scene memory, long-term scene memory, visual memory
