This book brings together chapters from investigators on the leading edge on this new research area to explore on the leading edge on this new research area to explore common theoretical issues, empirical findings, technical problems, and outstanding questions. This book will serve as a blueprint for work on the interface of vision, language, and action over the next five to ten years.


"The editors of this volume are uniquely positioned, by virtue of their own complementary expertise and strong reputations, to bring together this critical group of researchers who represent the best that cognitive science has to offer on these issues. The result is certainly a book that I would like to have on my shelf." -- James T. Enns, University of British Columbia

"Eye movements provide a fascinating source of information about

mental processes, for example those involved in scene perception

and reading. Recently, there has been a huge growth in the use of

eye movements to investigate the integration of linguistic and visual

information. This book gives a thorough overview of this rapidly

developing area, and includes chapters by many leading

researchers in language production, language comprehension, and

visual cognition. It should prove to be a standard reference for a

very long time." -- Martin J. Pickering, University of Edinburgh
