Language & Visual Cognition Lab

The Language and Visual Cognition Lab at Denison University

Our lab uses eye tracking to measure the cognitive processes that underly reading and other visual attention tasks. We are particularly interested in understanding why readers activate the sounds of their language even when they are reading silently and how readers rapidly make sense of language that is often massively ambiguous.

The lab is equipped with an Eyelink 1000 eye tracker (SR Research), which records eye position every millisecond while participants are reading or performing other visual attention tasks on a computer screen.
