Eye Tracking

The PLAN Laboratory is equipped with two an EyeLink 1000 and a Tobii Pro Fusion mobile eye-tracker. Eye-tracking technology allows for the naturalistic, continuous and temporally sensitive measurement of attention and cognitive processing. Individual measurements (including first fixation duration, gaze duration and saccade length) discretely reflect early automatic processing mechanisms and later integrative and/or strategic processes. Furthermore, pupil dilation serves as an index of gross neural activation. As such, eye-tracking serves as a powerful method to examine the time-course of information acquisition and integration among clinical and non-clinical populations.
