Eye-tracking allows researchers to probe the temporal dynamics underlying language processing. It is a primary source of data in psycholinguistics. Since the analysis of eye-tracking data is particularly complex, it requires cutting-edge techniques. With international partners, this grant allowed me to develop my quantitative skills, enabling me to become an independent user of eye-tracking methodologies. It also provided instruction in advanced statistical analyses.
