The Eyelink Toolbox: eye tracking with MATLAB and the Psychophysics Toolbox

Behav Res Methods Instrum Comput. 2002 Nov;34(4):613-7. doi: 10.3758/bf03195489.


The Eyelink Toolbox software supports the measurement of eye movements. The toolbox provides an interface between a high-level interpreted language (MATLAB), a visual display programming toolbox (Psychophysics Toolbox), and a video-based eyetracker (Eyelink). The Eyelink Toolbox enables experimenters to measure eye movements while simultaneously executing the stimulus presentation routines provided by the Psychophysics Toolbox. Example programs are included with the toolbox distribution. Information on the Eyelink Toolbox can be found at
