The pupil light reflex has a long history of being able to indicate states of mental arousal, ranging from sleepiness to concentrated cognitive effort. Such mental states have usually been inferred from pupil diameter or pupil area movements relative to some reference; sleepiness, for example, is characterized by a smaller than average pupil while mental effort brings on a slightly larger pupil. But all pupil movements and associated states of arousal are accompanied by a persistent random… CONTINUE READING
