Turku Eye-tracking Laboratories (Turku EyeLabs)

Turku EyeLabs is a community of researchers applying eye-tracking in research on cognition and learning. Our team aims to support eye-tracking research by sharing know-how on designing experiments, use of different equipment, and applications of various types of analytical tools.
The research conducted at the Turku EyeLabs covers various research topics from basic cognitive processes to higher-order cognition, such as learning in different disciplines. We conduct research across faculty boundaries, and bring together researchers with different backgrounds: e.g., psychology, educational sciences, linguistics, and medicine.
