The ACME Research and Study Group conducted the first session of the Eye Tracking Workshop
The first session of the Eye Tracking Workshop organized by the 'Attention, Computational Models and Eye Movements' (ACME) Research and Study Group took place on February 4, at the School of Psychology.
During the first session the participants were introduced to Eyelink 1000 Plus eyetracker, calibration methods, and eyetracking in general.
The workshop opened with a lecture on visual system and methods used to study it given by Dr. Joe MacInnes (Associate Professor, School of Psychology). During the second part of the session Mikhail Pokhoday (Research Assistant, Centre for Cognition & Decision Making) instructed the participants in the Eyelink 1000 Plus calibration techniques and outlined the key elements of the eyetracking experimental procedure.
We thank everyone who attended the first eye tracking workshop this past weekend. And a special thanks to Mikhail Pokhoday for his ecellent session on the Eyelink 1000, and to the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making for the use of their eyetracking equipment. Due to popular demand, Mikhail Pokhoday has agreed to give a full session on developing experiments with Experiment Builder later this month, and this will be followed by multiple sessions of Eyelink, Matlab and the Psychophysics Toolbox by Joe MacInnes. Everyone who signed up for this session will be contacted when we know the dates for the next sessions.
