VSS: Honored Vision Scientist Prof. Mary Hayhoe Looks to Future of VR
with Eye Tracking

Prof. Mary Hayhoe, who will this week be honored by the Vision
Sciences Society at its annual meeting in St Pete Beach Florida, says
the widespread uptake of immersive research using modified VR
headsets is set to spark a new wave of innovation in research
techniques and treatment methods.

"What we're seeing with VR is the science emerging with the
technology," she said ahead of the event.

"In the past, we have been restricted by the available technology to
simple stimulus displays and movements so we have been limited in the
kinds of questions we can ask. VR headsets with eye tracking allow us
to investigate vision and visually controlled actions in the context
of normal behaviour.

Prof. Hayhoe is one of three speakers (below) taking part in an SMI
satellite event symposium, coinciding with VSS in Florida.
