This result shown in Figure 1, where occupants demonstrated a higher probability for lowering upper window shades at any given stimulus value compared to lower windows contradicts the common assumption that building occupants located adjacent to the facade will be less sensitive to the luminance of upper daylight zone windows based on their location outside the occupant's foveal vision (i.
The place where one's glance is aimed is the place that corresponds to the highest resolution in the eye-the fovea, a slight depression in the retina at the back of the eye-while regions surrounding the foveal area-the periphery-allow access to less spatial detail.
In the late 1960s, Neisser (35) reasoned that image perception is a 2-stage process, in which (1) a preattentive stage analyzes the entire slide in parallel using the central and peripheral vision, and a global view of what is being displayed is acquired; this is followed by (2) a focal stage in which items or groups of items are examined under greater scrutiny by the foveal vision.

Following Ripoll (1988), in more complex situations, for example 3-on-2 situations in soccer, we hypothesize that a global visual focus of attention has more benefits, as in these situations, besides foveal also peripheral information needs to be processed efficiently.
