Eye Lab (FPN)

The Eye Lab houses a Eyelink 1000 system by SR Research. The unique design of the EyeLink 1000 makes it possible for the system to be used with a chin or forehead rest (head supported) or without any head support (remote / head free).

According to most theories, eye movements can indicate overt attention (i.e., the shift in attention involving eye movements) in contrast to covert attention (attention shift without eye movements). In our research the Eyelink 1000 is used for example to study (1) attention for the body in relation to body image and body satisfaction, and (2) the relationship between various components of attention bias (e.g., detection vs. sustained attention) for food and the experience of craving for food.
