Searching for unity: Real-world versus item-based visual search in age-related eye disease

Crabb, D. P. and Taylor, D. J. (2017). Searching for unity: Real-world versus item-based visual search in age-related eye disease. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 40, e135. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X16000054

Abstract

When studying visual search, item-based approaches using synthetic targets and distractors limit the real-world applicability of results. Everyday visual search can be impaired in patients with common eye diseases like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. We highlight some results in the literature that suggest assessment of real-word search tasks in these patients could be clinically useful.
