Eyes as windows to mind and brain

"My research is all about saccades. These rapid jerky jumps of our eyes from one place to another are the most common movements we perform every day. As a basic researcher, I am interested on the one hand in what it depends on, when and where we move our eyes. We can measure this with high temporal resolution and spatial accuracy. On the other hand, we analyse eye movements to investigate further cognitive psychological questions: How do we perceive visual information in our environment? How do we search for it? How does this information guide our perception and our actions? How does gaze control work when reading? In laboratory experiments we work with static and dynamic images of real scenes (photographs, videos) or with texts. Modern mobile measuring devices also enable us to make the step from the laboratory into the 'real world'."
