  1. For a discussion of such apparatus see Garten: Tigerstedt's Handbuch der physiologischen Methodik, 1, p. 103; 1911.
  2. Manufactured by Folmer and Schwing Division of Eastman Kodak Co. It is their No. 5 Cirkut Camera. The camera is not made at present but I am informed by the manufacturers that they put out about 3,000 of them. As it is a very rugged instrument most of the output must still be in existence in camera exchanges and in the hands of users. The ordinary price charged by these exchanges at present for the complete equipment is around $50.
  3. Dr. Eugene Shen used one of these cameras at Stanford in photographing the eye-movements in reading Chinese. See Miles and Shen, Photographic recording of eye movements in the reading of Chinese in vertical and horizontal axes: method and preliminary results, Journ. Exper. Psychol., 8, p. 344; 1925, and more recently Dr. M. A. Tinker has used one modified like illustration B of Fig. 1, for photographing the eye movements when reading formulas.
