Abstract—The studies of eye movements for understanding
underlying mechanism of visual attention and perception have
been challenging. These studies are obligatory to learn the
dynamics of humans’ cognition. We performed and studied eye
tracking experiments to examine the hypothesis that the
patterns created in scene viewing were predominantly
influenced by analogical perspective of cognitive processes. Eye
movement data, in terms of heat maps, were collected from
participants who watched artistic portrait during active viewing.
The patterns formed from eye tracking system in scene viewing
mapped a series of analogical visual portions of the scene. This
evidenced the hypothesis that analogical thinking induces eye
movements in scene viewing.
Index Terms—Analogical thinking, eye movements, cognitive processes, scene viewing.
