Abstract

To perceive a stable world, one must somehow be able to relate visual information from successive fixations. Little is known, however, about the nature of the integrative process. By using a task which requires the integration of spatial position information from different fixations, it is demonstrated that visual information from previous fixations is preserved in a world-centered representation which is precise enough to support judgements of geometric shape. It is also shown that successive views are aligned with respect to common visual features, indicating that visual stability may be normally accomplished by a visual matching strategy in combination with cancellation by an eye-position signal.
