Our lab is located on main floor of Sidney Smith Hall (room 521), next to the loading dock. There we have office space, a meeting room and two testing rooms for behavioral testing and eye tracking studies.
Our Eye Tracking Technology
For eye tracking, we use an EyeLink 1000 Plus manufactured by SR research. This eye tracker is compatible with both desktop and tower mounts.
How does eye tracking work? The eye tracker uses a small video camera to record an image of the left eye and reports to the experimenter a continuous stream of numbers that indicates eye position (indicated by pupil location and cornea reflection). To make the eye visible to the camera in the dark, a small infrared light is used to illuminate the eye. Specialized software on a dedicated computer analyzes the video obtained by the camera.
