Abstract (300 words maximum)

Being able to move between multiple representations is an important skill in biochemistry. Schematics are a type of representation commonly used in biochemistry instruction often combined with chemical structures to form a metabolic pathway. As little work has focused on schematics in biochemistry, this study uses the Tobii X2-30 Compact Eye Tracker system and electroencephalogram (EEG) to record experts and students enrolled in various biochemistry courses as they read and process various metabolic pathway images. This presentation will focus on differences in areas of interest (AOI), fixation, scan path analysis, and brain activation among and between the different groups.
