Title: The role of features in object perception

Abstract:  Whereas features can predict gaze to some extent in free-viewing laboratory situations their role seems to be limited in real life. Gaze, or overt attention, is thought to be determined mostly by the task at hand. Most natural tasks involve objects of some kind, which we can perceive by their features and which will also be the focus of attention. In this talk I will present three behavioral experiments that investigate the relationship between features and various kinds of object perception.
