Eye tracking in psychology and neuroscience research

Eye tracking solutions systematically capture and measure tiny eye movements and gestures, which generates accurate insights about visual attention, cognitive processes, and reactions — enabling researchers to expand scientific knowledge of behavior.

Why use eye tracking?

Pupil center corneal reflection (PCCR) is one of the most accurate and nonintrusive ways to capture and measure eye movements. Our eye trackers use this technique to deliver a data stream in real-time containing raw data, such as gaze point, eye openness and pupil diameter.

Reliable data capture in the lab and in the field

We provide complete solutions for examining behavior in psychology and neuroscience studies — whether you're conducting them in a controlled setting, like a lab, or out in the field. Our solutions deliver robust, repeatable data, enable freedom of movement, and are easy to use.
