Your eyes never stop moving.
Even though we are rarely aware of them, our eye movements are incredibly complex
. They are also very informative. Eye movement data is being used to study painters painting
, art lovers loving art
, drivers driving
, musicians sight reading
, and speakers speaking
, not to mention the cognitive science staples of reading
and scene viewing
. One interesting application of eye movement data is the Eyetrack2000 project
, which attempts to describe the eye movement behavior of people viewing news websites in order to improve web page design. Some of the findings
suggest that the internet and print media are different in important ways: on the web, text is fixated before pictures; in print, pictures are fixated first.
