MindTech is interested in the potential use of consumer level eye-trackers and Electroencephalogram (EEG) headsets for potential use by children with ADHD. asteroidsAt Spring Scientist week 2016 young people took part in a number of fun experiments. The MindTech experiment involved them playing a set of three games whilst wearing an Neurosky EEG headset, one commercial eye-tracking game Eye Asteroids employing the Tobii Eye-X eye-tracker and two further games (one a Forced Choice Experiment and one resting task) designed by MindTech using the Unity games platform, also based on an asteroids theme. Data was collected from the game plays and EEG and the results are currently being analysed. Running April 2016-present.
