Eye patterns in children: The development of anxiety and emotion
According to new research by Kalina Michalska, assistant professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside, we now know that anxious children tend to avoid making eye contact, and this has consequences for how they experience fear.

Personality shapes the way our brains react to eye contact
Eye contact plays a crucial role when people initiate interaction with other people. If people look each other in the eye, they automatically send a signal that their attention is focused on the other person. If the other person happens to look back, the two will be in eye contact, and a channel for interaction is opened. Eye contact is thus a powerful social signal, which is known to increase our physiological arousal. (2015-06-05)

Cereal box psychology
Researchers from Cornell's Food and Brand Lab found that cereals that are marketed to children sit half as high as adult cereals on supermarket shelves. In addition, the average angle of the gaze of cereal spokes-characters on children's cereal boxes is downward at a 9.6 degree angle whereas spokes-characters on adult cereal look almost straight ahead. They also found that brand trust is 16 percent higher when characters make eye contact with consumers. (2014-04-02)

(2006-01-18)

Writing in cursive with your eyes only
A new technology described in the paper published online on July 26 in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication, might allow people who have almost completely lost the ability to move their arms or legs to communicate freely, by using their eyes to write in cursive.
