MIND-WANDERING STUDY #1B

Pupil Behavior While Reading
in a Quiet Environment

Pupil dilation is known to be correlated with mental exertion; for this two-part mind-wandering experiment, I used Pupil Labs, an open-source eye tracking platform, to track my pupil diameter and gaze positions in two vastly different environments: 1) on the floor of my department on PB&J day, and 2) alone at home. The results of the latter are visualized here. Please see my documentation for more information.
