Using infants’ gaze to track their overt attention has been one of the most successful methods to obtain insight into cognitive development, including some fundamental paradigms in infancy research such as preferential looking and habituation/familiarization. The availability of automatic remote eye tracking has not just made looking time studies widely accessible, but also offers new approaches such as tracking gaze directed at small areas-of-interest, pupillometry, and gaze-contingent eye tracking. This chapter first covers eye movements as a behavioral metric in infant studies, then reviews classic looking time methods and their application in cognitive development, and finally turns to novel approaches to studying infant eye gaze that have been made possible by automatic eye tracking.
