  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Ocular movement was recorded while read-ing horizontally printed lines of various leng-ths at the distance of 30cm. A new phenomenon was discovered at the time of bringing back to the next printed line. In long printed lines in par-ticular, the eye did not immediately catch the beginning of the next line, but after a temporary pause, came to the beginnig of next line. The phenomenon is superficially similar to but dif ferent from that of regression, in which the eye returns to a previously scanned part of the material while reading on. The new phenomenon is named as insufficiency of brought back by the present authors.
