The conference was held at the Department of Psychology, University of Bern, Switzerland in 1981. The book is divided into four parts covering: Methods; Central and Peripheral Processing; Picture Viewing and Visual Tracking; and Cognitive Processes and Reading. Each part is introduced by one of the session chairpersons of the conference.
