Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


While varying the size and complexity of a stimulus object, we measured eye movements during fixation. Although subjects' eyes are fixated at the center of the object, the experimental results indicate that "fluctuation during fixation (FDF)" which is larger movements than "miniature eye movements" occurred. In addition, FDF varies according to the peripherals of fixation points characterized by the size and complexity of the stimulus object.
