Our neuropsychology laboratories contain specialist brain imaging and stimulation equipment, IT, and software. They comprise four soundproof booths, an adjoining preparation room, three smaller multi-use rooms, and an analysis suite. Off-site we have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility which is a shared resource through the Combined Universities Brain Imaging Centre (CUBIC).
- Electroencephalography (EEG):
- Three Wired Brain Products EEG Setups with setups that allow use with MRI, TMS, tES, and both gel-based and saline-based (128-channel) caps.
- One additional linked amplifier that allows auxiliary collection of physiological signals (EOG, EMG, ECG, GSR, temperature, pulse, acceleration).
- Two wireless (mobile) mBrainTrain EEG Setups.
- In addition, the School of Psychology also has other mobile EEG setups with BIOPAC Mobita and Neuroelectrics Starstim (tES/EEG), but these are not part of the neuropsychology laboratory facilities.
- Transcranial electrical stimulation (tES):
- Three DC Stimulator Plus (two Magstim, one Neuroconn) with setups that allow use in MRI setting.
- Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS):
- Two Magstim Rapid2 Stimulators with EMG interface, D70, D702 D50 Alpha B.I. coils and two BrainSight Neuronavigation systems.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI):
- 3T Siemens Trio MRI Scanner at CUBIC with 32 channel head array, 12 channel head array coil, and CP head coils.
- Dummy scanner.
- High-performance PC, laptops and screens for stimulus delivery, data acquisition and analysis.
Experiments within the laboratories explore aspects of cognition and behaviour across the lifespan in both non-clinical and clinical populations. These experiments can use purely behavioural experiments, cognitive modelling, psychophysics, or combinations of neuropsychology techniques aimed at imaging or stimulating the brain. Using these techniques you can study the brain and how it impacts behaviour, examine how the brain adapts to change, and how brain processes can be modulated.
