Psychology and Neuroscience
Eye tracking is used in various psychology and neuroscience fields to understand how and why eye movements are made and how we gather information visually.
Why use eye tracking in psychology and neuroscience?
Eye tracking is used in these fields of research to understand the connection between what we see and how we react based on the information we process.
Products and services
Tobii Pro offers eye tracking systems for psychology and neuroscience studies in a controlled research setting, such as a lab, as well as examining human behavior in real-world environments, like in an office or home. Analyzing data is made easier with our various software solutions and their ability to work with other companies’ solutions.
Tobii Pro Spectrum
The Tobii Pro Spectrum offers up to a 1200 Hz sampling rate with high spatial and temporal precision and accuracy. It tolerates large head movements, which opens up possibilities for unobtrusive research of oculomotor functions with active subjects, such as children or atypical populations (e.g. those with autism spectrum disorder). The Pro Spectrum allows you to study eye movements and behaviors such as saccades, micro-saccades, tremor, fixations, scan paths, and pupil dilation.
The Pro Spectrum provides exceptional flexibility, accommodating a wide array of research scenarios and study designs. This system can be used with the provided screen or with the eye tracker alone, enabling research with both on-screen and real-world stimuli, such as physical objects or people.
The TTL port and precise timing of Pro Spectrum enable seamless synchronization capabilities with external biometric data sources, providing a holistic view of behavior.
The combination of eye tracking and EEG enables the simultaneous examination of brain activity and eye movements. This provides researchers with information about regions of brain activation associated with cognitive or affective activities, such as visual search or the viewing of emotionally-charged imagery.

The Pro Spectrum works with Tobii Pro Lab, a versatile biometric software platform designed to meet the highest demands in different research scenarios with exact timing accuracy. This software supports the entire process – from test design and recording, to the interpretation and presentation of results while offering the ability to sync with other biometric data sources.
Stimuli can be shown on screen for as short as 50 milliseconds, making it suitable for research requiring very high precision in timing. When stimuli are presented, TTL signals are sent to sync the stimuli presentation and data recording with external research systems. This capability will allow researchers to ask more complex questions, for example, when adding eye tracking to their EEG research.
Tobii Pro SDK is available for researchers who wish to develop niche applications or scripts for use with the Pro Spectrum.
