ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on several factors associated with asymmetric attentional visual fields. It references a study published in the 2008 issue of "Investigations in Ophthalmology and Visual Science." It was found that age, gender, visual performance and cognitive ability were associated with the size and shape of the asymmetric attentional visual field.

    It is well known that there are some characteristics of physiological inequality among vision fields. But, based on many studies, this inequality does not lead to psychological inequalities. Our aim was to assess directly the effect of vision field (foveal, parafoveal, peripheral) on irrelevant...
