Electrophysiology

The Electrophysiology Facilities in the Woods Lab contain a state-of-the-art acoustic and radio frequency shielded faraday chamber for electrophysiology recording procedures with a separate experimenter observation station. The observation station contains extensive live data and subject monitoring equipment. The lab has 64-channel active and TMS compatible (passive) electrode arrays using a BrainVision ActiChamp electrophysiology system for electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potential (ERP) recording, as well as all necessary electrodes, gels, caps, and materials. The lab also maintains BrainVision equipment for simultaneous recording of electrocardiography (ECG), electromyography (EMG), electrooculography (EOG), galvanic skin response (GSR), heart rate, respiration rate, and three-dimensional movement capture (3D Accel). In addition, the lab space contains hair washing and electrode- cleansing facilities for participant prep and equipment maintenance. The lab houses both stationary and mobile data collection and analysis computers equipped with EEG/ERP Lab and Brain Vision Analyzer. All electrophysiology data collection and analysis equipment are dual designed for onsite or offsite recording, to facilitate projects where participants are unable to travel to the lab for research testing.
