Head-mounted Video-Oculography (VOG) eye tracking is visually intrusive due to a camera in the peripheral view. Electrooculography (EOG) eye tracking is socially intrusive because of face-mounted electrodes. In this work we explore Electroencephalography (EEG) eye tracking from less intrusive wireless cap scalp-based electrodes. Classification algorithms to detect eye movement and the focus of foveal attention are proposed and evaluated on data from a matched dataset of VOG and 16-channel EEG. The algorithms utilise EOG artefacts and the brain's steady state visually evoked potential (SSVEP) response while viewing flickering stimulus. We demonstrate improved performance by extracting features from source signals estimated by Independent Component Analysis (ICA) rather than the traditional band-pass preprocessed EEG channels. The work envisages eye tracking technologies that utilise non-facially intrusive EEG brain sensing via wireless dry contact scalp based electrodes.
