WHAT IS EYE-TRACKING IN NEUROPSYCHOLOGY?
Eye-tracking technology in combination with neuropsychological assessments can be used to provide insight into the cognitive functions involved in complex tasks like analogical reasoning, and can assist in differentiating and detecting any performance differences in individuals who have ever suffered a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Eye-tracking and various assessments are used to compare performance between individuals who have a history of concussion and those who do not.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Adults between 18 and 60
Those with concussion/TBI should not have any recent head injuries during the past 6 months
All participants should not have uncontrolled seizures, epilepsy, or psychotic disorders
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
A visit to the Center for BrainHealth to complete self-report questionnaires
One clinical interview
Assessments of reasoning, relational abstraction, and working memory
Eye-tracking is done during one of the assessments but requires simply looking at visual stimuli while completing a task, no equipment needs to be worn. Study participation takes less than two hours and participants are compensated for their time.
