Keith Rayner

Atkinson Family Distinguished Professor

In Memoriam/ Reseach Lab Still Active

The main topic of research in the Eyetracking lab is eye movements during reading and other cognitive processes.

Research in the Eyetracking Lab is conducted under the general direction of Keith Rayner, a Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of California, San Diego. But much of the research is conducted in collaboration with other professors and graduate students in Psychology, Linguistics and Cognitive Science at UCSD as well as Universities around the world.

Researchers in the Eyetracking Lab study a wide variety of cognitive processes, ranging from language comprehension, language production and scene perception to visual search and eye movement control using various eyetracking apparati.
