Abstract

One of the classic problems in perception is how visual information from successive fixations of a scene is integrated to form a coherent view of the scene. The results of this experiment implicate a process that integrates by summing information from successive fixations after spatially reconciling the information from each glimpse. The output of this process is a memory image that preserves the properly reconciled information from successive fixations.
