Communication through pupillometry

By clicking here you can download a demonstration video (6.1MB, avi-format) of our system for pupil-based communication (see: Stoll, J., Chatelle, C., Carter, O., Koch, C., Laureys, S., & Einhäuser, W. (2013). Pupil responses allow communication in locked-in syndrome patients. Current Biology, 23(15), R647-R648.)

Legend for video:

Top left : Experimental setup, computer screen is visible to the far right.
Top right: Stimulus as seen by the patient.
Bottom left: Online analysis of pupil size.
Rechts unten: Operator's screen with view of pupil.
Audio: The question is read by the experimenter (“Is your name Josef?”); after 5s the system provides the answer "non" ("no") and further 5s later "oui" ("yes") (which is correct in this case).

Real-world eye movements

Here you find a video that shows you gaze-centered (top) and head-centered (bottom) recordings, while walking on easy (left) or difficult (right) terrain: video (Publication: 't Hart, B. M., & Einhäuser, W. (2012) Mind the step: complementary effects of an implicit task on eye and head movements in real-life gaze allocation. Experimental Brain Research, 223(2), 233-249.)
