Neuroscience Research Resources

scanner
The lab has available state-of-the-art resources for cognitive neuroscience research, including testing rooms for behavioral studies, a fully equipped tDCS laboratory for neurostimulation studies, data processing and analysis workstations, and a group meeting room. We further have available through the KU Psychology Department a psychophysiology laboratory equipped with multiple BioPac stations as well as access to a screen-based Tobii eye-tracker. Our neuroimaging studies are conducted through our collaboration with the Hoglund Brain Imaging Center at KUMC using a brand new whole-body 48-channel 3T Siemens Skyra MR Syste

The scanner provides a full array of standard and additional features including a variety of clinical MRI and MRS protocols, various head, and body receive coils including a 12-channel head coil array. The Hoglund Brain Imaging Center further has available a cortical magnetoencephalography (MEG) laboratory which is currently supporting a number of studies that take advantage of the millisecond temporal resolution of the MEG technique to provide insights into the dynamics of the evoked brain activity in relationship to a relatively wide range of neuroscience questions.
