Expsy: a workgroup for psycholinguistics in Stuttgart

Expsy was born with the aim of bringing together people who work on behavioral experiments in different departments and research group, within the SFB but also reaching out beyond the SFB boundaries. 

Expsy members join a mailing list as a forum were to interact for on-demand problems and have regular meetings to ask for feedback and pose questions about behavioral experiments, experimental design, lab equipment and statistical analysis.

Coordinators: Nadja Schauffler (IfLA, Project A7), Diego Frassinelli (IMS)

Abstract:

Eye tracking is a widely used technique to uncover the mechanisms underlying human information processing. In this workshop, we will discuss theories, methods and analyses necessary for understanding, designing and carrying out empirical studies using eye tracking. We will focus on studies using eye tracking across a spectrum of paradigms mostly tapping into language and vision. Sessions will include lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and exercises regarding the analysis of experimental data. On the first day, we will introduce eye tracking methodology and paradigms from reading and visual cognition (e.g., search task), and teach the participants to extract from the data, the basic measures that are widely reported in the literature.
On the second day, we will go on to examine recent work looking at eye movements in complex, realistic stimuli and the interaction between vision and language. In the lab session, participants will learn to align fixations to speech, model fixation data distributed over a time-course, and perform scan-pattern similarity analyses.  There will also be time for the participants of the workshop to practice example
data or the results of their own experiments. By the end of the workshop participants will build an understanding of eye movement methodology in order to carry out state-of-the-art investigations in vision, language, and human cognition at large.
