The Cognition and Emotion Research Centres has a wide range of neuroscience equipment including:
|Large soundproof laboratory|
|3D Eye tracking – measures eye positioning and movements|
|64 channel Electroencephalography (EEG) – detects electrical activity in the brain using electrodes.
|Facial Electromyography (EMG) – measures and records facial muscle activity, such as smiling and frowning.
|Heart rate monitoring and skin conductance – we record heart rate, and skin response to measure stress and anxiety levels.|
|Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) – a non-invasive brain imaging device for measuring brain activity in the prefrontal cortex.|
|Mild Brain Stimulation – for the application of various forms of mild brain stimulation, including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS).
|Combined EEG-tDCS – EEG monitoring during the electrical stimulation of tDCS.|
|E4 Wristbands – monitors physiological signals, such as heart rate.|
|Touch screen computers|
