E-Lab is a shared research space as a core facility under The Institute for Brain and Cognitive Sciences.

Space: E-Lab offers over 1,000 square feet of space. It is comprised of a 100 sqft sound-attenuated and electrically-shielded sound booth; an area for cleaning equipment and washing participants’ hair; a larger open area for meetings, instruction, and quiet work; two workstations for data analysis; an anteroom that houses related staff and serves as a welcome space and lobby for participants; and a series of 5 small rooms for testing and storage (ranging from 80 – 100 sqft). Two are equipped for remote eye tracking, one is equipped for EEG, and one is equipped for tDCS.

EEG: Two 64-channel BrainVision ActiCHamp EEG systems (which can be run with 32 or 64 channels), and one 32-channel BrainVision EEG system (estimated cost of $50,000 per system). All accessories (caps and electrodes), consumables (gel, syringes, laundry, combs, shampoo, and more). Specialized accessory hardware for obtaining audiometry, auditory brainstem responses (ABRs), and other peripheral physiology (including galvanic skin responses (GSR), electromyography (EMG), and electrocardiography (EKG)) is also available.

Eye-Tracking: Two Eyelink 1000 Eye Tracker systems (estimated cost of $35,000 per system) and one portable Eye Tracker from SR Research.

Computers: There are approximately 12 PC computers throughout the lab placed in the different testing rooms and workstations. Necessary software is installed on almost all workstations.

Support: A lab manager is available 10 hours per week to assist with training of lab members, scheduling, inventory, and troubleshooting equipment. IBACS also has a research associate available for project-specific technical assistance on request at an hourly rate. Dr. Joergensen’s expertise is in eye tracking and how to integrate eye movements/pupillometry with other measures such as fMRI, MEG, and EEG. She can assist with research development (experimental design, paradigm development, and programming), data extraction, visualization, and analysis using specialist eye tracking software.
