Differential vergence movements in reading Chinese and English: Greater fixation-initial binocular disparity is advantageous in reading the denser orthography

Yi-ting Hsiao, Richard Shillcock, Mateo Obregón, Hamutal Kreiner, Matthew AJ Roberts, Scott McDonald
2018 Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology  
We report differential exovergence in reading Chinese and English: Chinese readers begin fixations with more binocular disparity, but end fixations with a disparity closely similar to that of the English  ...  We conclude that greater fixation-initial binocular fixation disparity can be adaptive in the reading of visually and cognitively denser text.  ...  These data address binocular movement within a fixation, for a large, representative corpus of reading-for-meaning behaviours with multiline text in relatively typical reading conditions (normal room lighting  ...

Small temporal asynchronies between the two eyes in binocular reading: Crosslinguistic data and the implications for ocular prevalence

Ruomeng Zhu, Mateo Obregón, Hamutal Kreiner, Richard Shillcock
2021 Attention, Perception & Psychophysics  
AbstractWe investigated small temporal nonalignments between the two eyes' fixations in the reading of English and Chinese.  ...  We interpret them in terms of their implications for ocular prevalence—prioritizing the input from one eye over the input from the other eye in higher perception/cognition, even when binocular fusion has  ...  The original data collection was funded in part by ESRC (UK) Grants R39195 and R39942.  ...

Distraction by deviant sounds during reading: An eye-movement study

Martin R Vasilev, Fabrice BR Parmentier, Bernhard Angele, Julie A Kirkby
2019 Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology  
Acknowledgements Fabrice Parmentier is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the University of Western Australia and a Visiting Professor at Bournemouth University.  ...  Participants rested their chin on a headrest to minimise head-movement artefacts. Viewing was binocular, but only the right eye was recorded.  ...  To do so, we developed a new method to measure the effect of deviant sounds on eye movements during reading.  ...

The potential contribution of preplanned refixations to the preferred viewing location

Scott A. McDonald, Richard C. Shillcock
2004 Perception & Psychophysics  
We used a corpus of eye movement data to show that the probability of refixation is strongly correlated with the estimated perceptibility of the target word from the current fixation location, and that  ...  On the basis of recent evidence for the preplanning of refixation saccades in reading-like tasks (e.g., Beauvillain, Vergilino, & Dukic, 2000) , we proposed that for a proportion of words refixated during  ...  ANALYSIS OF AN EYE MOVEMENT CORPUS Method Our analyses employed the EMBRA (Eye Movement Behaviour during the Reading of newspaper Articles) corpus of eye movement data collected in our laboratory.  ...

No prediction error cost in reading: Evidence from eye movements

Steven Frisson, David R. Harvey, Adrian Staub

Word count main text: 7,464 2 Abstract Two eye movement while reading experiments address the issue of how reading of an unpredictable word is influenced by the presence of a more predictable alternative  ...  In fact, an unpredictable word that was semantically related to the predictable alternative demonstrated facilitation in the constraining context, in relatively late eye movement measures.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank Denis Drieghe for his help with stimuli creation and analyses, and Bernhard Angele and Andrew Olson for their help with the data analyses.  ...

Visual Binding of English and Chinese Word Parts is Limited to Low Temporal Frequencies

Alex O Holcombe, Jeff Judson
2007 Perception  
These stimuli restrict the time scale of the rod identities because the two sets of alternating words form the same image at high alternation frequencies.  ...  A similar result was obtained in an analogous experiment with Chinese participants viewing alternating Chinese characters.  ...  We thank Liqiang Huang for assistance with the Chinese aspects of the study, including his work to identify Chinese character pairs that could be used in our paradigm.  ...

Reading is disrupted by intelligible background speech: Evidence from eye-tracking

Martin R. Vasilev, Simon P. Liversedge, Daniel Rowan, Julie A. Kirkby, Bernhard Angele
2019 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
Additionally, it is not clear how eye movements support text comprehension in the face of distraction by background speech and noise.  ...  These findings suggest that the semantic properties of irrelevant speech can disrupt the ongoing reading process, but that this disruption occurs in the postlexical stages of reading when participants  ...  The data files, R scripts, and reading stimuli used in the present research (Vasilev, Liversedge, Rowan, Kirkby, & Angele, 2019) are openly available at: https://osf.io/jvsm8/  ...
