The goal of this project is to examine the consequences of observer motion for visual function. The research has focussed on two issues One issue is how a grossly time-varying retinal input because of eye, head, and body motion results in the perception of a continuous and directionally stable visual world. A second issue concerns how the information in successive views is related, and the nature of the visual information retained from previous views. Understanding these processes is important for a wide variety of visual-motor tasks. In the past year progress has been made on the following six projects. 1 The role of the visual scene and eye position signals in visual stability 2 The role of attention in integrating across saccades 3 Reference frames for spatial memory 4 Hand-eye coordination during complex tasks 5 Detectability of changes during saccades and 6 Short term visual memory of complex scenes.
