Liquid crystal displays (LCD) are currently replacing the previously dominant cathode ray tubes (CRT) in most vision science applications. While the properties of the CRT technology are widely known among vision scientists, the photometric and temporal properties of LCDs are unfamiliar to many practitioners. We provide the essential theory, present(More)
We present a mobile system for tracking the gaze of an observer in real-time as they move around freely and interact with a wall-sized display. The system combines a head-mounted eye tracker with a motion capture system for tracking markers attached to the eye tracker. Our open-source software library libGaze provides routines for calibrating the system and(More)
Among the various possible criteria guiding eye movement selection, we investigate the role of position uncertainty in the peripheral visual field. In particular, we suggest that, in everyday life situations of object tracking, eye movement selection probably includes a principle of reduction of uncertainty. To evaluate this hypothesis, we confront the(More)
PURPOSE Accurate characterization of diagnosis instruments is crucial in medical applications such as radiology and clinical neurosciences. While classical CRT medical displays have been replaced almost exclusively with liquid crystal devices (LCDs), the assessment of their temporal properties (response times) is still largely based on heuristic methods,(More)
