In this BSL EOG lesson, students record horizontal and vertical eye movement and observe eye fixation and tracking. Students perform a number of tasks that allow them to record the duration of saccades and fixation. The electrooculogram lesson also permits students to record spatial position of eye movements.
Compare eye movement when fixated on a stationary object and tracking objects.
Measure duration of saccades and fixation during reading.
Instructor’s option: Record spatial position of eye movements during visual examination of materials.
Tasks Performed by the Student
BSL Lessons are designed to allow at least four students to record and save data in a normal lab period (60-90 minutes). Typically, labs work most efficiently with three or more students working together at each BSL station.
Record horizontal and vertical EOG.
Face their partner.
The partner will hold a pen in front of the subject and the subject will focus on the pen.
The partner will move the pen horizontally and the subject will track the movement.
The partner will move the pen vertically and the subject will track the movement.
The subject will read a passage of text.
The subject will face the monitor and position their eyes to the center of the screen. By moving their eyes they will control the dot on the screen.
Very easy to setup and record the data.
Tools for zooming in to see the saccades.
Great introduction to EOG.
The software automates the calibration procedure for the student. There are no knobs and dials to confuse them.
On-screen commands prompt the students throughout the lesson.
BIOPAC’s Simple Sensors warn students if they plug the wrong device or transducer into the system.
The lesson will also work with different stimuli.
BSL Instructor’s Guide provides lab tips and lesson options.
BSL Answer Guide included.

BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allow for research teams to record and analyze respiration activity in physiological experimentation. Here are a few notable studies in monitoring respiration and cardiovascular activity. The coupling between peripheral microcirculation and slow breathing: The purpose of this study was to investigate the coupling of breathing movements and microcirculatory blood […]
