The class will focus on the theory, methods and experimental applications of eye tracking and EEG technology in cognitive science. The theoretical part of the course will cover research involving these technologies where themes discussed will include memory, language, attention, reading, gesture, congruencies, and more. Throughout the semester the students will engage in an experimental design workshop in groups to get firsthand experience. The exam should resemble a research article.
