Comprehending Coherent and Incoherent Texts: Evidence from Eye Movement Patterns and Recall Performance.
Vauras, Marja; And Others
Journal of Research in Reading, v15 n1 p39-54 Feb 1992
Examines effects of text structure on reading process and recall performance by monitoring the subjects' eye movements as they read coherently and incoherently structured texts. Finds that structurally incoherent texts are given more visual attention than coherent ones and lead to inferior recall. Finds no clear-cut correspondence between eye movement behavior and quantitative recall performance. (PRA)
