CSS - Eye Tracking Lab

Eye Tracking Lab

Our research focuses on cognitive processes involved in visual search, inductive reasoning, graph comprehension and human computer interaction. We are also interested in testing oculomotor functions in neurological patients. We use eye-tracking-techniques, which allow us to monitor the sequence of information selection and acquisition. Recording eye movements is a method which provides a rich and detailed description of the ongoing and moment-by-moment processing.

We have two labs equipped with Eyelink I and Eyelink II eye-tracking systems by SR Research. They use infrared video-monitoring at a sampling
rate of 250 - 500 Hz.
