Many a times, we are consciously aware that we are making an eye-movement (EM) to see something (explicit process). For such processes, where do eyes look when they look at a simple display and organize incoming visual entities in a particular pattern (perceptual organization/grouping)? What is special about the points where eyes stop for a moment (fixation points)? Is there a mathematical formula for capturing the special features (information metrics) present at the fixation points? Can the quantitative outcome/formula of ePOEM make computers group entities in a way similar to humans?

Objective: Visual correlates of PO from explicit EM

Development of information metrics from eye-movement data that are indicators for the visual system to translate the discrete information from points of fixation into a holistic percept, for example, one coherent group. (work in progress)
