Abstract: Assessing users’ states becomes increasingly important also for technical systems. In the present study, we assessed the influence of hunger on processing food versus household items by monitoring eye movements in a picture categorization task. As indicator for sympathetic activation, pupil dilation was additionally assessed in hungry and satiated participants. Food and household items were presented in the left and right visual field and the task of the participants was to indicate whether the pictures in both visual fields represented the same (household vs. food) or different categories (household and food). Although behavioural data did not differ between hungry and satiated participants, more thorough investigations of gaze behaviour showed that hungry participants were more impaired in processing household items than the satiated ones. In addition, mean pupil dilation differed between hungry and satiated participants. Pupil size was shown to correlate with hunger ratings suggest ing that gaze-based measures can indeed serve as diagnostic tool for sensing user states. (More)
