Eye Tracking Research
If you are interested in conducting research that involves eye tracking or if you have any questions, please contact us at
"Eye tracking is the process of measuring either the point of gaze...or the motion of an eye relative to the head. An eye tracker is a device for measuring eye positions and eye movement. Eye trackers are used in research on the visual system, in psychology, in cognitive linguistics and in product design" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_tracking). Eye tracking has also been extensively used to study reading and second language processing. The hardware and software available at LCLC can facilitate tracking one's eye movement while observing text, images, or video on a computer screen.
