TitleCHAPTER 1: PASSIVE VISION AND ACTIVE VISION
Authors
JournalActive Vision — The Psychology of Looking and Seeing, Published to Oxford Scholarship Online
Year of publishing2008
AbstractA Martian ethologist observing humans using their visual systems would almost certainly include in their report back: ’they move these small globes around a lot and thats how they see‘. The starting point for this book is an acceptance of the premise of that ethologist. We believe that movements of the eyeballs are a fundamental feature of vision. This viewpoint is not widely current. Many texts on vision do not even mention that the eye can move. In this chapter, we try to outline the reasons why most work on vision pays so little attention to the mobility of the eyes and set out how we feel this balance should be redressed.
