Stimulus-driven guidance of visual attention in natural scenes

Derrick J. Parkhurst, Ernst Niebur

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A large body of research indicates that the focus of attention and eye movements is guided by bottom-up, stimulus-driven mechanisms of visual attention. This research has primarily used simple experimental tasks and simple visual displays in order to maximize experimental control. This chapter discusses recent work that reexamines bottom-up guidance of attention by measuring eye movements made by observers viewing complex, natural scenes. The results of this research indicate that under natural viewing conditions, attention is indeed guided by stimulus-driven mechanisms.
