SANTOS, Natanael Antonio dos et al. Matlab and eye-tracking: applications in psychophysics and basic psychological processes. Temas psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.3, pp. 589-601. ISSN 1413-389X.

This article aims to demonstrate the utilities of Matlab (MATrix LABoratory) and eye-tracker for research in psychophysics and basic processes. We first introduce its origin, functioning, and advantages over other programs, and then we review different applications of Matlab in psychophysical tests involving eye-trackers. As an example, we present the development of a psychophysical test involving eye-tracker and Matlab, showing its ability to communicate and interact with other devices and programming languages. Finally, we emphasize the advantages and difficulties of working with Matlab.

Keywords : Psychophysics; Matlab; Eye-tracker; technological innovation.
