Description

FUNCTION: Enables the study and analysis of human perception.

DESCRIPTION: The Human Perception Laboratory facilitates the study of perception, particularly as it relates to visual tasks of a military nature. One of its primary assets is the NRL Eyetracker. The Eyetracker is used to monitor and analyze an observer's visual perception. It tracks the pupil of an observer. The pupil location determines eye movements that in turn indicate areas of attention and cognition. Eyetrackers are portable and do not restrict natural movements and behavior. Among its many applications, the Eyetracker can be used to evaluate search strategies, information display, and camouflage effectiveness.

INSTRUMENTATION: Four NRL Eyetrackers; large-screen monitors; video processing and analysis stations.
