The diagnosis of psychiatric disorders often relies on clinician’s interviews and self-reported questionnaires. These techniques suffer from inter-observer variability and are often affected by communication difficulties. Analysis of visual scanning patterns is a method that can help to objectively characterise patients with psychiatric disorders. A series of paradigms and methods that are based on the analysis of visual scanning behaviour in patients with mood disorders, eating disorders and Alzheimer disease will be presented.


Dr. Eizenman is a professor of ophthalmology and vision sciences, biomedical engineering and electrical engineering at the University of Toronto and an associate scientist in the neuroscience institute at the Toronto Western Hospital. Dr. Eizenman received his Ph.D. in Electrical and biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1984 and his research interests include: gaze estimation systems, control of eye movements, biomarkers for neurological and psychiatric disorders and advanced signal processing and machine learning. Dr. Eizenman served on grant reviewing committees for the NIH, NASA, NSERC and CIHR and he authored or coauthored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications. Prof. Eizenman is the founder of EL-MAR Inc., a developer of advanced eye-tracking systems.
