What is visual distraction?
Distraction is an alteration (or divergence) of attention from a primary task to other tasks or stimuli. It thus induces impairments of attention on the primary task that can also lead to human performances decrease. The gaze behavior gives an indication of a person’s state of distraction, in particular his visual attention state. Visual distraction is thus the attention impairments related to the gaze behavior.
