Eva Marie Koch - Speaker

The study of eye movements and pupil dilation through eye-tracking is gaining increased attention in the humanities, not in the least in psychology and the language sciences, as it provides a non-obtrusive way of tapping online into cognitive mechanisms (e.g. attention allocation, awareness) that are thought to play a role in various types of learning and information processing.
During this brief workshop, we will first talk about eye-tracking research in the humanities: What is an eye-tracker and how does eye-tracking work? How can eye-tracking be applied in the language sciences? After that, we will have a look at the EyeLink Portable Duo, one of our own eye-tracking devices at the VUB. We will run a Visual World Paradigm experiment (i.e., a combination of pictures and auditory input) to illustrate the eye-tracker and to provide you with some practical eye-tracking experience.
