The prototype of a gaze-controlled, head-mounted camera (EyeSeeCam) was developed that provides the functionality for fundamental studies on human gaze behavior even under dynamic conditions like locomotion. EyeSeeCam incorporates active visual exploration by saccades with image stabilization during head, object, and surround motion just as occurs in human(More)
During free exploration, humans adjust their gaze by combining body, head, and eye movements. Laboratory experiments on the stimulus features driving gaze, however, typically focus on eye-in-head movements, use potentially biased stimuli, and restrict the field of view. Our novel wearable eye-tracking system (EyeSeeCam) overcomes these limitations. We(More)
BACKGROUND Workload assessment is an important tool for improving patient safety in anaesthesia. We tested the hypothesis that heart rate, pupil size, and duration of fixation increase, whereas saccade amplitude decreases with increased workload during simulated critical incidents. METHODS Fifteen trainee anaesthetists participated in this randomized(More)
BACKGROUND Situation awareness (SA) is considered to be an important non-technical skill for delivering safe anaesthesia. The spatial distribution of visual attention (VA) is an underlying process for attaining adequate SA. In the present study, a novel technology was used to assess the distribution of VA in anaesthetists delivering anaesthesia. The impact(More)
This roport contains descriptions of the karyotypes of 60 species of Syrphinae collected in South America, including five species for which the karyotypes have been deseribed previously. The 55 newly added South American species represent the tribes Syrphini (11), Bacchini (14), Melanostomini (11) and Toxomerini (19) with chromosome numbers ranging from(More)
Eye, head, and body movements jointly control the direction of gaze and the stability of retinal images in most mammalian species. The contribution of the individual movement components, however, will largely depend on the ecological niche the animal occupies and the layout of the animal's retina, in particular its photoreceptor density distribution.

Medical treatments of a surgeon or a dentist are sometimes documented for teaching, telemedicine, or liability issues using a scene oriented video camera. But the most interesting parts of the scene are often covered by the operators hand or body. The best view to the scene is next to the operators field of view or perfectly: Within his head. Head-mounted(More)
Humans adjust gaze by eye, head, and body movements. Certain stimulus properties are therefore elevated at the gaze center, but the relative contribution of eye-in-head and head-in-world movements to this selection process is unknown. Gaze- and head-centered videos recorded with a wearable device (EyeSeeCam) during free exploration are reanalyzed with(More)
Remote eye tracking systems are widely used evaluation tools in many disciplines. Such systems have to deal with free head motions that cause a defocussing of the camera image. Hence, remote eye tracking systems usually have a limited operating range. This contribution presents a novel auto-focus setup for a small and mobile remote gaze tracking system that(More)
Head mounted cameras are well known and widely used in the fields of documentary movies and augmented reality. When combined with an eye tracker, these cameras can emphasize the point of gaze within a picture of a whole scene. A gaze-driven, head-fixed camera was recently described, with witch it is possible to capture pictures viewed by the eyes. The goal(More)
