Where and when does the what system play a role in eye movement control?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (4):680-681 (1999)
This commentary focuses on Findlay & Walker's model and more specifically, on its underestimation of the role of cognitive processes in eye movement control during complex activities such as text scanning. In particular, the issue of the complexity of the subject's task/behavior is discussed to stress the importance of the link between selection for perceptual processing on the one hand, and the selection of a target for a saccade, on the other. Future models will have to account for the fact that the goal of any saccade is to bring the eyes to a relevant object and that the selection of this saccade target is closely related to object recognition.
