Indices : Terminology : Fixation

A fixation is the time between Saccades where the eye remains relatively motionless. It is during a fixation that the eye processes the information being viewed through either a word based or shape based (often referred to as bouma on Typophile) recognition process or part based letter recognition process.

This information is processed in the Fovea of the eye.
