    Humans have been studying eye movements for many years now. The first recorded person to publish studies that contributed to the field of eye tracking was Louis Émile Javal [1, 2] in 1878, roughly a century before computers started becoming commonly used. Javal observed human eye movement while reading and was the first to observe that eyes make a combination of rapid movements (which he called saccades) and short stops (which he called fixations). Javal conducted this experiment without the assistance

  • Smooth Pursuit Eye Movements

    object is identified, smooth pursuit eye movements are used to track the object as we, or the object, move through the environment. Smooth pursuit eye movements are slow eye movements that follow a target and are used to maintain its position on the fovea. The smooth pursuit eye movements studied here are conjugate with the eyes moving together and the angle between them preserved. A visual stimulus is usually required to initiate a smooth pursuit eye movement (Rashbass, 1961). Although, by degrading

    stages of sleep, rapid eye movement and Non-rapid eye movement. During rapid eye movement(REM) sleep, your voluntary muscles are paralyzed, your eyes move rapidly under your eyelids, and 90% of your dreams occur. In rapid eye movement sleep, your heart beats faster and body temperatures increase to near waking levels. While conscious, you have a total of 4 different sleep waves determining the 4 different stages you enter during rapid eye movement sleep. In Non- rapid eye movement(Non-REM) you are able

    Eye blink and eye movement are the artifact in the recorded EEG signal. The eye which consists of electrical dipole and eye sight change due to the eye movement and eye blink and also which causes change over the scalp. One approach is used for analysis and suppression of artifact is wavelet based technique. The other technique also used which effectively suppress the artifact is data driven technique is called empirical mode decomposition (EMD) with cross correlation. The EEG recorded EEG signal

    changes and the overt products, such as behaviour, accuracy, response times and eye movements. The scope of this essay is to review the evidence that demonstrates exactly how eye movements reflect cognitive processes. Due to the vastness of the topic, this essay will focus on only one of the aforementioned cognitive processes. There has been much attention and extensive literature and reviews regarding eye movements as a tool for understanding the processes of reading, visual perception, visual search
