Symposium on Cognitive Load
Seeing Through Listening Effort: Measuring Cognitive Load During Listening Using Pupillometry
This symposium is co-sponsored by CRBLM and CIRMMT.
Recent research has highlighted the need to take cognitive processing load into account when looking at speech communication, hearing impairment, ageing, etc. Specifically, research using pupillometry has shown that the pupil response is sensitive to the variations in cognitive load during a wide variety of tasks.
The goal of this symposium is to serve as an introduction to the topic and provide the basics to get started with your research. You will discuss with a panel of leading researchers in the field and observe real-time pupillometry experiments and analysis, using the equipment available at CRLBM and CIRMMT. You will also have the opportunity to see eye-tracking device manufacturers showcase their technical solutions.
To benefit most from this symposium, we invite you to prepare a short pitch on your current or ongoing project incorporating measures of cognitive load or listening effort. You will receive constructive feedback from our panel and explore possible new collaborations in the room! You are welcome to attend even if you don’t have a specific project in mind just yet and would like a practical introduction do this rapidly growing new field.
