Non-Human Primate Eye-Tracking Solutions
The EyeLink 1000 Plus camera can track the eye position of non-human primates, allowing researchers to record eye movement responses in their experiments without any surgery or alteration of the animal. The high level of precision and high sampling rate makes the EyeLink 1000 Plus an ideal video-based eye-tracking replacement for search coils with easy and distress-free setup and recording.
The EyeLink 1000 Plus has outstanding spatial specifications for primate research with a range of mounting options. The standard Desktop Mount can be used with suitable head support. The Primate Mount holds the camera and an infrared illuminator in a compact bracket that is typically affixed to a vertical surface such as a primate chair.
- Small Space Requirements: An infrared-reflecting hot mirror is used to project the viewer’s eye to the camera, which allows accommodation of a wide range of unique viewing setups within very small space requirements.
- High Wavelength Illuminator: The higher wavelength 940 nm illuminator minimizes the visibility to non-human species.
- Digital and Analogue Output: Output eye position and pupil size data in either digital format or as an analog voltage (within a programmable range).
- Calibration Options: Real-time data plotting with simple gain and offset adjustments allows for rapid calibration / performance monitoring. Horizontal and Vertical outputs can be linearly calibrated, and the calibrations can be saved and reloaded at a later date, allowing for easy switching between participants.
