H02 Compartmental Modeling

This BSL PRO Lesson examines the principle of compartmental modeling, which is based on the fact that electrical circuits can describe and simulate neural, biochemical, and biomechanical systems. Gerald Westheimer published the first quantitative saccadic eye movement model in 1954. He examined a 20° saccade recording, and assumed a step controller, to propose this second-order model to characterize eye motion.

Experimental Objectives

  1. Explore Westheimer’s saccadic eye movement model, which represents the eye as a second-order system.
  2. Record eye motion via EOG setup.
  3. Compare recorded EOG to modeled results.

One Tool for Stimulus Presentation, Eye Tracking & Physiology Data

BIOPAC shows you how physiological data is seamlessly synchronized with eye tracking and stimulus presentation in one integrated solution. The talk focuses on optimizing setup, highlighting the benefits of a fully-integrated solution, and how to extract eye tracking and physiology metrics from key points, such as the cumulative average skin conductance level while a participant is focused on areas of interest.

What you will learn:
• Hardware setup
• Stimulus presentation creation
• Setting up Areas of Interest (AOI)
• Recording participant data
• Analysis and reporting
