This chapter proposes that motivation may be one framework for considering how the perceiver and the target of perception can be connected, and that this may be a particularly useful way of understanding how certain types of perceiver-stimulus interactions shift across the adult lifespan. In other words, perceivers may bring motivation with them to the task of perceiving, separate from any goal states specific to the task, and these person-level motivational states appear to influence how visual attention is deployed. The chapter also provides evidence that such motivational influences on vision reflect developmental processes.

Keywords:   gaze, visual attention, motivation, visual perception
