Abstract:

After a series of significant delays beyond our control we have obtained the necessary equipment to do the studies. We have written software that allows the computer controlling the stimuli to interact with the separate computer recording eye movements. This is necessary, as our proposal requires making the stimuli progressively difficult and dependent on the exact position of the eyes. We have begun testing subjects outside of the protocol to refine the testing paradigm. We expect to begin testing subjects during the control phase of the testing within a few weeks and with sleep deprivation shortly thereafter.
