Investigators have claimed that various responses of the eyes can be used to determine many things, from interest in sexual feelings to the relative degree of processing occurring in the brain. Some of the more common areas of research have included relating the size of the pupil to arousal and examining eye movements in relation to processes such as reading and dreaming. Of the various measures possible, psychophysiologists have been most interested in pupillography, or the measurement of the size of the pupils and eye movement. This chapter explores pupillography and electrooculography, a technique for studying the position of the eyes. The use of electrodes for psychophysiological recording of eye movements is also discussed.
