This presentation is part of our ongoing series of researcher spotlights.
In this webinar, Professor Michael Boivin, from Michigan State University, will share preliminary findings from two recently-published pilot studies with Ugandan children born to HIV-positive mothers in an impoverished rural setting in eastern Uganda- both using eye trackers from Tobii Pro.
One of the studies involved the use of eye tracking with a laptop computer to evaluate working memory in response to photographs of human faces, as part of an evaluation of developmental delay in infants and toddlers. In a separate study, eye tracking measures were used in an evaluation of vigilance attention in response to an animation video with preschool-age children.
From these pioneering preliminary studies, strategies are proposed as to how we might use eye tracking to enhance the neurocognitive evaluation of at-risk children in resource-constrained settings with an application for pediatric neurodevelopmental assessment in the context of global health risk and resilience.
