Eye movements and their fascinating revelations about the eye and the brain
From Sandra Hedberg on May 23rd, 2018
The direction of your eyes reveals an impressive amount of information! The execution of a precise eye movement requires a combination of bottom-up and top-down information and, therefore, they can be used in many disciplines. When eye movements are analysed from an eye specialist perspective they may revel good or bad vision, if is a neuroscientist they may revel attention or the lack of it and if is a linguist they may reveal the ability to learn a language.
In this talk, I will start with an overview of the field and a brief historical perspective. After, and based in my previous research, I will explain how eye movements can be used to investigate vision and cognition in health and disease.
