Directional Scanning as a Function of Stimulus Characteristics, Reading Habits, and Directional Set
Nachshon, Israel; And Others
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 8, 1, 83-99, Mar 77
"32 English readers and 32 Hebrew readers were shown stimuli with directional characteristics (English and Hebrew letters) and stimuli with no directional characteristics (arrays of different circles, bars, colors, and geometric figures) for scanning. The results showed that, while directional stimulus characteristics affected the direction of scanning of letter stimuli, reading habits affected the strength of these tendencies." (Author)
