Integrating Perceptual and Consumer Decision-Making: Eye-Tracking Experiments

We show that consumers frequently choose alternatives, i.e., food items, that are visually salient, sometimes even when the less salient alternatives are more liked. Three properties of visual attention give rise to this effect: people look earlier, more often, and longer at visually salient alternatives, irrespective of their reward value.
