Eye tracking

Eye tracking is an unobtrusive method that can be used to gain a deeper understanding of psychological processes. By measuring eye movements and the size of the pupil, researchers can investigate numerous psychology-related questions such as how people maintain beliefs and how they form moral judgments. In this talk, social psychologists Willem Sleegers and Fieke Wagemans will discuss the history and the process of eye tracking and present several examples of academic studies using this technology.
