What is it about?

This article shows the behaviour of people with and without mental health issues while performing a daily grocery task. This is by using occupational therapy analysis on eye-tracker data in a real time measure. We used the Test of Grocery Shopping Skills and recorded the performance from the eye of the subject.

Why is it important?

It is the first paper to collaborate between occupational therapy and psychology research with this tool outside the laboratory.


This is the main publication of my PhD which dealt with translational research. This collaboration shows that when we shape a meaning to performance we can understand much deeper the behaviours and the needs of the clients.
