Increasing the benefits of eye-tracking devices in divided visual field studies of cerebral asymmetry

Abstract
A wide range of methods has been proposed for ensuring central fixation in divided visual field studies of cerebral asymmetry. We present some of the problems associated with ensuring central fixation and argue that objectively monitoring fixation location with an eye-tracking device can provide the only accurate and, therefore, acceptable technique. However, the mere use of this equipment does not overcome all of the problems associated with controlling fixation location, and previous studies have overlooked the importance of providing feedback on fixation accuracy and the role of visual attention. We propose a straightforward method of accommodating both these influences in studies using eyetracking devices to control fixation location.
