A window into neurological function and processes
Many cortical and subcortical regions of the brain are involved in visual processing and the coordination of eye movements. Attention is driven by an interplay of the salience of visual features and the top-down goals of the observer for selecting task-relevant information. Eye tracking allows researchers to investigate many aspects of function along portions of this visuo-motor pathway.
Automated processes and quantifiable data
Our tools enable researchers to study and quantify gaze patterns and eye movements in an objective way that increases reliability and reduces variability. Video-oculography eye tracking provides a more comfortable and less intrusive method than search coils and does not require attaching electrodes.
Eye tracking helps neuroscientists study:
- Eye movements, such as saccades, fixations and smooth pursuit
- Visual processing
- Interaction between eye movements, vision, and performance tasks
- Object-by-object search mechanisms in attentional studies
- Eye movement patterns in visual neglect
- Neurological functions involved in perceptual decision making
- Neurological networks involved in covert spatial orienting of attention across visual and auditory modalities
Product 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.
