How to Prepare for your Eye Tracking Experiment

Before you arrive to your eye tracking session, please ensure that you have gone over all of the questions below. Arrive at the Eye Tracking Lab at least 5 minutes before your scheduled time. A researcher will greet you at the lab and brief you on the experiment in which you are about to participate.

You will be asked to sit facing a monitor with your head in a chin rest to limit head motion. The researcher will adjust the table to a comfortable height before the experiment begins. During the experiment, a camera under the monitor will collect data of your eye gaze and pupil size.

After the experiment, the researcher will debrief you and you will be given the opportunity to ask questions.

Before your experiment, please go over all the following questions:

Do you wear glasses?

Glasses can affect the ability of the eye tracker to calibrate and track your eye. If you have contact lenses, it is recommended that you wear them instead of your glasses on the day of the scan.

Do you wear colored contacts?

Colored contacts can sometimes interfere with the camera’s ability to measure pupil dilation. It is recommended that you wear normal contact lenses on the day of your eye tracking session.

Our Eye Tracking Lab is located in room C21, on the bottom floor of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute building. The map below has been provided for your convenience.
