In the past few years, there has been an explosion of eye movement research in cognitive science and neuroscience. This has been due to the availability of ‘off the shelf’ eye trackers, along with software to allow the easy acquisition and analysis of eye movement data. Accompanying this has been a realisation that eye movement data can be informative about many different aspects of perceptual and cognitive processing. Eye movements have been used to examine the visual and cognitive processes underpinning a much broader range of human activities, including, language production, dialogue, human computer interaction, driving behaviour, sporting performance, and emotional states. Finally, in the past thirty years, there have been real advances in our understanding of the neural processes that underpin eye movement behaviour. The Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements provides a comprehensive review of the entire field of eye movement research. In over fifty articles, it reviews the developments that have so far taken place, the areas actively being researched, and looks at how the field is likely to develop in the coming years. The first section considers historical and background material, before moving onto a second section on the neural basis of eye movements. The third and fourth sections look at visual cognition and eye movements and eye movement pathology and development. The final sections consider eye movements and reading and language processing and eye movements.

Keywords: eye movement research; cognitive science; neuroscience; software; eye movement data; sporting performance; driving behaviour; emotional states; human computer interaction
