Additional Scientific Validation for Saccadic Research

Check out yet another scientific validation for PTG’s patented Saccadic Eye Movement Recording methodology.  Recent news out of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University shows how the eyes are the windows to the brain.  Here’s an excerpt from their research:

“Our eyes are constantly moving, whether we notice or not. They jump from one focus point to another and even when we seem to be focused on one point, the eyes continue to reflexively move. These types of eye movements are called saccades. During saccades, even if we are not actively thinking about moving our eyes, our brain is still quickly working to land our focus precisely on spots that hold important information, such as the eyes of a person that you are talking to. The saccade is an example of sensorimotor coordination — how we coordinate our movement with what we sense -and has a far-reaching impact on motor control. Therefore, it is important to understand what is happening in the brain during saccades.”
