Abstract : The research sought to understand certain fundamental aspect of visual information processing in the areas of recognition, exploration and search behavior-progress was made in the following areas. Laboratory Reconfiguration. During the six months of this contract ASL undertook to upgrade and augment the eye movement recording equipment at HEL. One major effort was devoted to writing a data acquisition program to record and analyze pupil diameter data. Data Collection & Analysis. An entirely new hardware and software data acquisition environment had to be designed and built and a new I/O configuration designed for the PDP 11 computer. Keywords: Computer applications; Modeling; Optical imaging; Algorithms; Attention; Vision; Pattern recognition; Target recognition; Data storage; Laboratory equipment.
