The USC Language Processing Lab is equipped with an EyeLink II eyetracker as well as a portable Tobii T120 eyetracker, which we use for research on both language comprehension and production. The EyeLink II uses a head-mounted system,whereas the Tobii allows for fully remote eyetracking. Students also have access to a range of software, including E-Prime and MatLab, as well as desktop and laptop computers for experiments using other methods such as reaction-time measurement, self-paced reading and language production.

The lab also offers opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in research. Please email Dr. Kaiser if you are interested.
