Title A study of VDU operators' information processing based on saccadic eye movement and response time
Bibliographic information June 1985, Vol.28, No.6, p.855-867. Bibl.
Abstract Visual search experiment carried out to delineate operator visual information processing in VDU work. Eye movements, response times and performances were measured. The operators used 2 different types of information processing sequential and rereading. The relation between information processing and performance revealed that the subject who carried out the sequential type performed better in information processing. Regularity in eye movement produces better performance.
