Coordination of Attention: Eye Fixations, Pupil Diameter, and Head Distance, Respond to Goals and Predict Memory

This research tests a model of attention coordination, which focuses on head position, eye fixations, and pupil diameter. Significant effects of eye fixations on memory were observed, as before. Importantly, small head movements of about one centimeter and even smaller changes in pupil diameter predicted better memory, in addition.
