001}. 001, respectively). The results clearly show that ‘attention shift’ was the crucial factor that reduced foveal bias. 8 ms. In the disappeared landmark conditions, the landmark was no longer available after the disappearance. Therefore, we cannot attribute the significant reduction of foveal bias observed in the disappeared conditions to memory averaging of the target and attended landmark. In addition, both disappeared and nondisappeared conditions differed significantly from the no-landmark condition in this experiment.

Accordingly, we cannot argue for the possibility that attention shift to the landmark itself induced spatial shift that was purely the source of the reduction nor can we argue for the alternative that the position of landmark was spatially ‘averaged’ with the target in memory. To resolve the above issue, we employed in the next experiment a new sequence of stimuli in which the landmark nearest the target was suddenly caused to disappear. By examining this condition, we tried to provide evidence for/against attention shift or memory averaging reducing foveal bias.
