Patient-Based ResearchUsing eye movement signatures to unravel underlying brain mechanisms in patient populations is an important and fruitful area of investigation. Psychiatric research of eye movement characteristics of schizophrenia, ADHD, autism, and Williams-Beuren syndrome has been very successful. In Neuropsychology, the study of eye movements is contributing to the understanding and characterization of head trauma, hemineglect, synesthesia and the agnosias to name but a few areas.
EyeLink 1000 Plus eye trackers:
- have a wide field of view, making patient setup and positioning faster and less cumbersome than other high-speed systems.
- can be situated remotely (both physically removed from the patient and in a Remote Mode without head stabilization) to maximize patient comfort.
- work well with glasses, especially when the head is stabilized.
Please note that EyeLink eye trackers are intended for research purposes only and should not be used in the treatment or diagnosis of any medical condition.
