Our research team at the University of Exeter, led by Professor Mark Wilson and Dr Sam Vine, specialises in optimising the training of visually guided motor skills, so that they can not only be learned as quickly as possible, but also performed under pressure when necessary.


This research has been applied to a number of areas including sport and surgery, and has produced a number of studies on how practicing gaze training techniques can enhance laparoscopic technical skill acquisitions, and multi tasking performance in surgeons..


In this video, Prof Wilson talks about the teams’ research and how their gaze training techniques can be used by novice surgeons to improve the retention and transfer of laparoscopic technical skills.

This evidence based training resource was developed by the University of Exeter in conjunction with:
