What Eye Movement Behavior Can and Cannot Tell Us About Human Behavior

The direction, duration, and distance that our eyes move can reveal hidden information about human behavior and cognitive processing.  Measuring these eye movement behaviors with advanced eye tracking technology has increased our understanding of psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, marketing, and many other fields.  In this session, you will learn about eye movement behavior, eye tracking technology, what eye movements can tell us about human behavior, and the limits of drawing conclusions from eye movement behavior.  You will have the opportunity to have your own eye movements tracked with an EyeLink 1000 Plus eye tracker, and we will analyze your eye movement pattern. 

This class will take place on Stetson University's DeLand campus and will be limited to 10 students because of the amazing technology involved. Masks are required. Safer Stetson evaluates the safety of on campus programs during the pandemic; if safety demands, we will cancel the class and issue refunds.
