Featured EyeLink Article: Having the ability to understand things from another person’s viewpoint is critical for successful social interactions and relationships. Theory of Mind research examines this ability to mentalize another person's thoughts. Specifically, Theory of Mind refers to both the c
The concept of visual angle is critical to many aspects of eye tracking research, but it is one of those things that people are somehow just expected to understand. This blog is my attempt to explain visual angle in the way I wish someone had explained it to me, e.g. with the bare minimum of math...
Featured EyeLink Article: Peripheral vision is optimized to detect movement and large shapes. For example, in the above image, a person looking at the green field is likely to note an odd, large shape in the periphery but not any of its details. In order to resolve detail, the person's center
Featured EyeLink Article: Magicians are generous to researchers. Not only do their tricks inspire scientific questions, but those tricks also provide spellbinding demonstrations to hook and interest kids and adults alike. Inspiration and fascination can't be underestimated. They open doors to
Thousands of articles using EyeLink eye trackers have been published over the last two decades. Many of these articles are in high-impact journals including Nature Neuroscience, Psychological Science, Neuron, PNAS, and many more. Researchers also use EyeLinks to gain insight into a wide range of
Researchers are increasingly using eye trackers to explore changes in pupil size (pupillometry) in order to reveal insights into cognitive processes. EyeLink eye trackers are capable of detecting changes in pupil size of just 0.1% of the pupil diameter, and their high sampling rates allow pupilliary
At SR Research, we are keen to support open-access publishing as well as the sharing and distribution of research data. To play a small part in the promotion of free and accessible research, we have a blog post listing open-access journals that regularly publish eye-tracking research. Here, we
The benefits of combinging Eye Tracking with EEG Recording Researchers are increasingly aware of the benefits of combining eye tracking with EEG and other neurophysiological recording equipment. One of the most common rationales for recording simultaneous EEG and eye tracking data is "artefact
Over the last couple of months we have been working hard updating our database of EyeLink publications. One big change we've made is that the eye tracking research papers listed on the website can now be searched - by year, author name, journal title and keywords. In addition, each reference is
There are a number of conferences around the world that include eye-tracking research. Some conferences specifically focus only on eye-tracking data; others are more general but have a fair amount of eye-tracking presentations. Here, we provide a comprehensive list of both types. These
More and more people are publishing eye-tracking research in open-access journals. This is due, in large part, to the increased number of open-access journals as well as greater interest in publishing research that anyone can use and view without paying for access. For ease and convenience, there
What is eye tracking? Put simply, eye tracking is the process of measuring eye movements. A typical goal for eye tracking research is to establish where people look (i.e., their “point of regard” or “gaze"). To this end, scientists usually use a video-based eye tracker, such as the EyeLink 1000 Plus.
