Researchers use eyetrackers to monitor where a person looks, when and for how long. The movement of the eyes is influenced by “bottom-up” information, such as the contrast or specific colors present within a picture. Eye movements are also influenced by “top-down” information such as task instructions, attention, and memory. Examining where people look can provide information about the integrity of cognitive processing.
