Eye movements emitted immediately after the presentation of a visual display are strongly driven by the relative salience of individual items in the visual field. However, to date it is unclear how salience affects oculomotor selection beyond an initial eye movement. The present contribution aims to provide an answer to the question how salience-driven control unfolds over a sequence of eye movements. The results of several studies will be reported showing that eye movements elicited shortly after the presentation of a display were primarily salience driven. Subsequent eye movements were unaffected by salience but the effects of salience could be reinstated by a local salience increase, even when this increase was presented during an eye movement. The results are in line with the idea that the transsaccadic salience representation does not hold information about the relative salience of objects but only contains information concerning the locations of distinct objects in the visual field.
