Learning about eye-tracking

by Alexia Revueltas Rouz, PhD student (Centre for Research in Digital Education)

What do we look at when we are looking? When do we stop looking? What drives our gaze from one place to another?

Eye-movements are small and not easily perceived. These are strongly related to visual attention, to a degree that moving your eyes to a different location will shift your focus of attention (although it is possible to shift your attention without moving your eyes).
