Dear Colleagues! Centre for Cognition & Decision Making invites you to a seminar:«Oculomotor measurements of abstract and concrete cognitive processes»by Dr Andriy Myachykov  Senior Lecturer, Department of Psychology Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Northumbria University
Analysis of oculomotor behaviour has long been used as a window into the cognitive processes underlying human behaviour. Eye tracking allows recording of highly accurate categorical and chronometric data, which provides experimental evidence about various aspects of human cognition including, but not limited to, retrieval and activation of information in memory and allocation and distribution of visual attention. As a very diverse and accurate experimental tool, eye tracking has been used for the analysis of low-level perceptual processes as well as for the investigation of higher cognitive processes including mental arithmetic, language, and communication. One example of the latter is research using “visual world” paradigm, which uses eye movements of language users (listeners and speakers) in order to understand cognitive processes underlying human linguistic communication.In the first part of my talk, I will offer a broad overview of eye tracking methodology with a specific focus on measurements and their evidential value in different cognitive domains. The second part will discuss results of a number of recent eye-tracking studies on sentence production and comprehension as well as number processing. Date:        08.07.14Time:       17.00Address:  Volgogradsky Prosp., 46B
