Abstract:

The ocular movements of tremor and drift are well known to physiologists but their purpose is unknown. The work describes a model of a peripheral section of a visual analysor which offers an explanation for the functions of these movements and considers them as a specialized system for the active analysis of images which are moved to the periphery by the organism. In addition, the model permitted looking at the recognition process as a dynamic process and not a static process in a new manner. Author
