Movement and Attention with Eye Trackers

Recruiting Now!

The MCRL is examining the role that vision plays in movement and attention. We are using state of the art technology to examine eye gaze and pupil dilation during movement and different thinking tasks.

This study will help to provide more information about the connection between moving and thinking! 

What will I be doing?

You will be asked to perform different movement and thinking tasks while wearing the eye tracking glasses. The movement tasks are simple and are things you might do in your everyday life. The thinking tasks will require you to do a thinking test in which you listen to a series of beeps and indicate if the beep was a high pitch or a low pitch. 

You are eligible if you:
  • Are 18-30 years old
  • Are 60-79 years old
  • Are able to walk without an assistive device
  • Normal or corrected to normal hearing and vision
  • No neurological or vesitbular conditions
  • No musculoskeletal conditions impacting gait and balance
  • Able to read and speak English

The study takes about 45 minutes to an hour and you would be compensated $10 for participation. All testing for this study happens in Huff Hall room 1006. Parking is free and on site!
