About the Project
This project will explore readers’ ability to gain preview benefit and use predictability information across these sentence and line boundaries. The results of this project have major implications for the EZ-Reader model of eye movement control which Microsoft is currently interested in extending to simulate reading of larger passages. This project would therefore require use of high speed eye tracking equipment and fast computer monitors in order to collect the necessary gaze contingent eye fixation data. The project will provide an excellent PhD training opportunity to the most promising candidate who has a strong background in experimental psychology.
