Attention and distraction in the modular visual system of a jumping spider

Elizabeth Jakob, Margaret Bruce, Daniel Daye, Skye Long, Alex Winsor, Ronald Hoy & Gil Menda
Animals must selectively attend to relevant stimuli and avoid being distracted by unimportant stimuli. Jumping spiders (Salticidae) do this by coordinating eyes with different capabilities. Objects are examined by a pair of high-acuity principal eyes, whose narrow field of view is compensated for by retinal movements. The principal eyes overlap in field of view with motion-sensitive anterior-lateral eyes (ALEs), which direct their gaze to new stimuli. Using a salticid-specific eyetracker, we monitored the gaze direction...
