Unlocking the Mind’s Eye: Exploring the Power of Eye Tracking in Multimodal Biometric Research

Today’s episode features prior guest Dr. Pernille Bülow, Product Specialist at iMotions where she consults and trains researchers on multimodal biometric data collection and study design. Penny speaks with Dr. Ryan Jane Jacoby, who is a licensed clinical psychologist at the Center for OCD and Related Disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Psychology (Psychiatry) at Harvard Medical School. Her clinical & research interests focus on the behavioral/psychophysiological measurement of transdiagnostic psychological processes using multi-method approaches.

From investigations into clinical mental illness regarding bipolar disorder, depression and PTSD, to general health monitoring, education, and performance, multimodal biosensor studies have seen blossoming interest. These two experts covered how combining facial expression analysis, heart rate, eye tracking, skin conductance or other multi-sensor behavioral research techniques can have immediate implications on the clinical, diagnostic or intervention aspects of mental health research.
