    Samenvatting

    Four subjects with peripheral field defects, one subject with central field defects and one subject with normal visual fields were trained to improve driving performance by means of improving their scanning behaviour. After training, overall driving performance did not improve. Viewing behaviour, however, did improve: enhanced viewing strategies were observed while performing an 'Attentional Field of View' test (AFOV) as well as while driving. The results of the AFOV test show a trade-off between the efficiency of distribution of attention and the sensitivity to react to stimuli in the central area.
