Tracking eye movements in search of Alzheimer’s

Published December 30, 2019

Nature India reports on MindEye, a project that uses eye-tracking tech to detect mild cognitive impairment. The tool, a collaboration between scientists in India and Anirban Dutta, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, could help in early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

MindEye is a low-cost, user-friendly device, integrated with computerized cognitive tests, big data analytics and cloud computing, underpinned by affordable software. Dutta's collaborators are Uttama Lahiri at IIT Gandhinagar and Abhijit Das at AMRI, Kolkata.  

Dutta says, “India will provide big data for training a better classifier or biomarker than what could be available in the US or EU.”
