Eye Movements Look for Analogical Patterns during Scene Viewing

Gufran Ahmad

Abstract—Research studies of eye movements for comprehending underlying mechanism of visual attention and perception have been inspiring. These studies are mandatory to have knowledge of humans’ cognitive dynamics. We conducted and analyzed eye tracking experiments to test the hypothesis that the patterns generated during scene viewing were primarily determined by analogical aspect of cognitive processes. Eye movement data, in terms of heat maps, were collected from participants who viewed artistic portraits during active viewing. The patterns produced from eye tracking system during scene viewing traced a sequence of similar elements of the scene. This scientific investigation proved the hypothesis that eye movements looked for analogical patterns during scene viewing.

Index Terms—Eye movements, analogical patterns, cognitive processes, scene viewing.
