Natural gaze behavior during human-computer interaction provides valuable information about user’s cognitive processes and intentions. Including it as an additional input modality therefore provides great potential to improve human-computer interaction. However, the relations between natural gaze behavior and underlying cognitive processes still is unexplored to a large extend. In this paper we identify and characterize major factors influencing natural gaze behavior during human-computer interaction with a focus on the role of user’s mental model about the interactive system in that context. In a user study we investigate how natural gaze behavior can be influenced by interaction design and point out implications for usage of gaze as additional modality in gaze-based interfaces.
