Cognitive offloading benefits eye gaze interaction

  • For some people with strong motor impairments, controlling a computer with theeyes is the only possibility for human-computer interaction. In addition, gaze controlis becoming a new option as an input device for the general population as wellbecause of the increasing availability of eye-tracking technology. Yet, little is knownabout additional cognitive demands involved in gaze control and how to handlepotentially high demands when using the eyes not only for perception but also foraction. The present study shows that cognitive offloading improves performancewhen using gaze control. Memory for to-be-studied items benefitted significantlyfrom saving another set of items just studied before for later restudy. Employing cog-nitive offloading in a targeted manner may be a useful means to assist in mastering eye-gaze control.
