Eye Movement And Intrinsic Latency test (EMAIL)

This Eye Movement And Intrinsic Latency test measures oculomotor parameters such as blinks, visual processing times and eye movement latencies, all of which are affected by anxiety and fatigue.

EMAILIt also measures how quickly peripheral targets are detected and carries out goal directed saccades (rapid eye movements between fixation points) along with reaction times and decision processing response times.

What is unique about EMAIL?

This test is the only one of its kind and is carried out without the need for any eye-tracking equipment.

Who can benefit from it?

These are important functions for anyone in a safety critical occupation within optically demanding environments such as commercial pilots, train drivers, air traffic controllers and even firefighters.
