Welcome to the Wesleyan Eye Movement and Reading Lab! We are part of the Psychology Department and Neuroscience & Behavior Program at Wesleyan University. We are also affiliated with Wesleyan’s College of Education Studies

Our lab studies the processes involved in the complex skill of reading. We are particularly interested in how words are recognized, understood, and organized in the mental lexicon (i.e. the mental dictionary).

Our primary method for investigating word recognition is to measure readers’ eye movements through eye tracking. Our lab is equipped with an Eyelink 1000 eye tracker (SR Research, Ltd), which records eye position every millisecond while participants read sentences on a computer screen.
