Transcript of Eye-Tracking and the Study of Emotion

How mood states affect information processing during emotion recognition (Schmid et al., 2011)
Eye Tracking and the Study of Emotion
What are eye trackers measuring? - Part I
Fixations: pauses between eye movements during which the eyes focus on a specific area of the visual field
The pupil as a measure of emotional arousal and autonomic activation (Bradley, et al., 2008)
How Do Eye Trackers Work?
What Are Eye Trackers Measuring? - Part II
TEPRs: Task-Evoked Pupillary Responses
Indicators of:
Cognitive Load (Cacioppo, 2000)
Memory Retrieval (Cacioppo, 2000)
Emotional Arousal (Partala & Surakka, 2003)

Global Processing: taking in complex units of information as a whole, integrative unit
Local Processing: in-depth analysis of individual pieces that comprise the complex information unit
Testing Emotional Induction Methods (Partala & Surakka, 2003)
Mood-Congruent Attention Biases (Isaacowitz, et al., 2008)
Emotion Regulation (Wadlinger & Isaacowitz, 2008; Isaacowitz, Toner, & Neupert, 2009)
*Bradley, et al., 2008
Happy moods predicted more global information processing, which is more conducive to emotion recognition, but not less local processing
Women processed information significantly more globally and less locally than men, and outperformed them throughout the emotion recognition task
