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.

Research conducted at Turku EyeLabs covers various 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.

Are you interested in using eye-tracking in your research? Turku EyeLabs coordinators and researchers organize open-to-all meetings and method demonstrations. Our laboratory facilities can be booked via this electronic form. Based on the requests, the lab schedule for the spring term is planned in early January and for the fall term in early August. If you are only familiarizing yourself with this method, please first contact one of the Turku EyeLabs coordinators and ask for more information about method training and research collaboration.
