Eye movement analysis to establish a multidimensional signature of normal cerebral functioning and the effect of normal ageing

Eye movements constitute a reliable marker of some aspects of cerebral processes. For example, the time needed to initiate an eye movement toward a face can inform about the speed of face recognition while the ability to voluntarily suppress a reflexive eye movement toward a flashed point can be used to assess the integrity of inhibition processes. The investigation of eye movements, using eye-tracking methods, appears as an attractive tool to easily and non-invasively assess the normal cerebral functioning.
In this context, the aim of the PhD project is to (1) record eye movements in a large sample of healthy participants of different age range using three visual oculomotor tasks, (2) to extract and analyze several eye movement parameters to asses different cognitive, visual and motor processes in order to identify a multidimensional signatures of normal cerebral functioning, and (3) to measure the impact of normal ageing on this signature.
This PhD project should have significant impact to develop new diagnosis and/or mental and cerebral health screening tools based on eye-tracking.
