Special Issue "The Study of Eye Movements in Infancy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 April 2020.
In the study of infant cognition, researchers are required to assess abilities without being able to provide verbal instruction or receive verbal responses. Consequently, the measurement of looking behaviour has become a fundamental technique for investigating cognitive development in preverbal populations. While classic paradigms such as preferential looking and habituation recovery have greatly advanced our knowledge about how infants see and make sense of the world, recent advances in eye-tracking allow us to now study the precise spatial and temporal dynamics of eye movement behaviour. As a result of these advances, we are at the advent of an exciting new phase in developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience in which we can explore infant visual and cognitive development with far greater accuracy and objectivity. In summary, the implementation of eye-tracking technology in our research has the potential to revolutionise our understanding of infant cognition.
I am therefore delighted to announce that this Special Issue will seek to compile a series of articles that use eye-tracking to explore any aspect of infant cognition, vision and/or oculomotor control. Additionally, we welcome any articles that evaluate the efficacy of different eye-tracking systems, fixation and saccade parsing algorithms, newly developed analysis tools/methods and/or data precision and robustness in general.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
