It was almost two years ago that i blogged about peripheral vision for Next Berlin.
“Talking about effectiveness again: a peripheral vision enabled our ancestors to survive (because somehow they also realized that there was a danger coming). It is my sincere belief that following the topic of service design and service management (or attending a conference about these kind of subjects) enables one to survive as a professional, as a person, an organization and as institution”.
Recently some interesting search results indicate that a sharper vision is a result of mental trickery. So, much of what you see in your peripheral vision is essentially visual memory. To validate the concepts, researchers used eye-tracking technology while people sawa series of images in their peripheral vision.
Dr. Arvid Herwig, who co-authored the study, said:
“The experiments show that our perception depends in large measure on stored visual experiences in our memory.
We do not see the actual world, but our predictions.”
