Assessing the Feasibility and Validity of Using Eye Tracking to Study Infants’ Cognitive Function in Rural Malawi
19 May 2017
FANTA partners carried out a field test with 9-month-old infants in rural Malawi to assess the feasibility of using a non-invasive, eye-tracking-based method to assess infant cognitive function in a low-income setting. The method was found to be feasible. A follow-up study showed few associations between eye- tracking-based assessment of visual and cognitive function at 9 months and non-specific risk markers for early child development.
