Summer scientist

I will participate with a mouse tracking task in this year's summer scientist. In this event, children can take part in our studies. In my study, I will look at how two cues of direction (eyes gazing and hands pointing) compete for attention.

Instead of using Mouse Tracker I will use mouse tracking in OpenSesame for the simple reason that while OpenSesame could be installed on the lab computers, installing Mousetracker could not (no admin permissions). Using OpenSesame I found that it was easier to present to images simultaneously, and change the feedback given to the participant. Many thanks to Eoin Travers for sharing the mouse tracking script!
