Description

Different people have different perceptual patterns in response to language. Different language accents may influence one’s visual cognition by referencing to certain objects when listening to stories. The purpose of this study is to record differences in eye movement patterns while listening to stories by manipulating the auditory stimulus and cognitive load. Using the eye tracker, eye movement patterns will be recorded as subjects look at objects on a screen. I posit that subjects will delay eye movement patterns to target objects while listening to stories in a foreign accent as opposed to an American accent because of increased cognitive load. I will discuss my preliminary findings during the poster session.
