Computational Approaches to Reading and Scene Perception

Computational Approaches to Reading and Scene Perception

John M. Henderson
November 19, 2012

What we see and understand about the visual world is tightly tied to where we direct our eyes. High-resolution visual information is acquired from only a very limited region of the scene surrounding the fixation point, with the quality of visual input falling off precipitously from central vision...

Eye Guidance in Natural Scenes: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Eye Guidance in Natural Scenes: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Benjamin W. Tatler
September 24, 2009

Successfully completing many forms of behaviour requires that humans look in the right place at the right time: This has generated a large volume of research aimed at understanding how the eyes are guided. This special issue demonstrates that the decision about where to look involves a large number...

Binding: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Binding: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

James R. Brockmole, Steven L. Franconeri
February 27, 2009

Visual processing acts as a prism, splitting visual information from the retinal image into separately processed features such as color, shape, and orientation. Binding refers to the set of cognitive and neural mechanisms that re-integrate these features to create a holistic representation of the...

Attentional Capture: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Attentional Capture: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Bradley S. Gibson, Charles Folk, Jan Theeuwes, Alan Kingstone
April 16, 2008

The notion that certain mental or physical events can capture attention has been one of the most enduring topics in the study of attention owing to the importance of understanding how goal-directed and stimulus-driven processes interact in perception and cognition. Despite the clear theoretical and...

Visual Search and Attention: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Visual Search and Attention: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Herman Muller, Joseph Krummenacher
September 14, 2006

This special issue of Visual Cognition collects some 30 articles on Visual Search and Attention by leading experts from a variety of disciplines, including experimental psychology, neuropsychology, neurophysiology and computational modelling. The articles are updated versions of papers presented at...

Age of Acquisition Effects in Word and Object Processing: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Age of Acquisition Effects in Word and Object Processing: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Chris Barry, Robert A. Johnston
June 22, 2006

Models of word and object processing have been informed by experimental data relating to the effects of important marker variables, particularly word frequency. In recent times, however, the role of word frequency has come to be questioned due to the demonstration of the impact of a correlated...

Real World Scene Perception: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Real World Scene Perception: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

John M. Henderson
September 29, 2005

The current volume, a special issue of Visual Cognition, brings together an eclectic group of investigators, all of whom study critical issues in the perception of true real-world scenes. Topics include the rapid acquisition of scene gist; scene recognition; spatial layout and...

Visual Social Cognition: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Visual Social Cognition: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Elaine Fox
March 31, 2005

It is widely recognized that visual processes modulate many social interactions. For example, the eye-gaze of another person is a powerful cue to guide attention to a particular part of the visual field. Conversely, a direct gaze may indicate potential threat or the opportunity for a sexual...

Visual Space Perception and Action: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Visual Space Perception and Action: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Jochen Müsseler, A.H.C. Van der Heijden, Dirk Kerzel
March 18, 2004

Vision is not an end in itself. Instead, it has evolved to assure survival in a dynamic environment. Vision - as well as the other senses - evolved from the necessity to act in this environment. Therefore, perceptual processes and action planning are much more interlocked than evident at first...

Independence and Integration of Perception and Action: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Independence and Integration of Perception and Action: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Robert Ward
May 23, 2002

The remarkable complexity and sophistication of our perceptual systems have evolved for ultimately one purpose - to promote efficient and effective action within a constantly changing environment. Traditionally, the route from perception to action has often been viewed as a single, one-directional...

Neural Binding of Space and Time: Spatial and Temporal Mechanisms of Feature-object Binding: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Neural Binding of Space and Time: Spatial and Temporal Mechanisms of Feature-object Binding: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Mark Elliott, Christoph Hermann, Axel Mecklinger, Hermann Muller
August 09, 2001

Some of the central problems to be solved by the brain, such as figure-ground coding and object recognition, concern the binding of separately coded feature elements into coherent object representations. The binding problem has recently been approached by a variety of disciplines, notably...

Change Blindness and Visual Memory: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Change Blindness and Visual Memory: A Special Issue of Visual Cognition

Daniel J. Simons
February 10, 2000

A central goal in the study of object and scene perception is to understand how visual information is integrated across views to provide a stable, continuous experience of our environment. Research on issues ranging from visual masking to priming across saccades to the representation of spatial...
