Participants will play a computer game that is controlled by their gaze patterns and designed
to direct attention their attention to specific on-screen targets. Visual attention to
targets will be rewarded. Both visual behavior and brain response will be recorded during
game play.

It is hypothesized that that, over the course of the game, relative to baseline, participants
will show (a) increased looking to targets, (b) decreased response time to targets, and (c)
enhanced, more efficient neural response to visual cues. It is hypothesized that clinical
variability will associate with visual attention and brain response.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Able to participate in an eye-tracking experiment

- Able to participate in an EEG experiment

Exclusion Criteria:

- Sensory or physical impairment that would preclude completion of protocol

- Participants taking prescription medications that may affect cognitive processes

- Participants reporting significant head trauma or history of seizures
