Center Capabilities and Resources

 

 

 

Small Unit Ambulatory Virtual Environments (SUAVE) Lab: This capability provides unparalleled virtual reality experiences to engage people in high fidelity multisensory environments and high stakes tasks. Three networked full field of view virtual reality systems afford novel understandings of team coordinated behavior, human-robot teaming, and human-systems integration.

Neuromodulation Lab: This capability provides world-class high definition low current brain stimulation (tDCS) systems and accompanying predictive current propagation models for targeting cortical and subcortical structures. Systems include seated, wireless mobile, and with simultaneous EEG recording.

Electroencephalography (EEG) Lab: The EEG laboratory at the Center for Applied Brain and Cognitive Sciences is equipped with a BioSemi ActiveTwo Biopotential Measurement System that can simultaneously record EEG (up to 72 electrodes), electro-dermal activity (EDA), respiration rate, skin temperature, plethysmography, electromyography (EMG), and electrocardiography (ECG). In addition to the BioSemi ActiveTwo system, the laboratory is also equipped with a SR Research Eyelink 1000 that is fully integrated with the psychophysiological measures from the BioSemi system.

Exercise Lab: This lab enables cortical hemodynamic and behavioral monitoring as a function of physical fatigue over a range of exercise modes and intensities. Systems include treadmill, recumbent ergometer, physiological monitoring and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) recording.
