Real Time Tracking
The two white dots in the black square area on the screen represent the two eyes and show the real-time tracking.
Gaze Plot
On the screen we can see a 'gaze plot' - this is a post-recording process where the fixations and saccades are overlain on the stimuli for initial visual interpretation.
