The Stroop test has been used to argue that reading is an automatic task for proficient readers.

When reading, preferred viewing locations (PVL)—the centers of the distributions of fixation targets---are typically located slightly left of the center of words.

When reading, the standard deviation of the distribution of fixation targets within a word increases with the distance between the start and end of a saccade.

During reading, the further a saccade lands from the center of a word, the greater the probability of a re-fixation.
