The eye movement portion of the report describes the various types of eye movement, the problems of measurement, and the techniques available to measure these eye movements. Some of the more advanced oculometers are described and the need for data processing and adequate data reduction technique is emphasized. In the section covering dependent variable and performance measures, a list of direct and derived measures is provided which covers scan paths, fixations, eye blinks, and changes in pupil size. The section on blinking contains a critical and selected review of articles in this area. The physiology of blinking is reviewed and experiments dealing with normal blink rate and theories of blinking are discussed. (Author)
