Facilities and Equipment
Vision Science Workstation by Cambridge Research Systems
This equipment enables us to precisely track eye movements and changes in pupil diameter as a subject observes still images, text, or video.
Allows for the gathering of subject responses to various stimuli, this data can be analyzed to investigate reaction times to visual information.
Power Lab data acquisition systems by AD Instruments
Used in Neuroscience and Biology courses, these versatile modular systems allow students to capture electrophysiological data including EMG, EEG, reflexive response, heart rate, blood pressure, galvanic skin response, and intra/extra-cellular neuronal traces.
Histology and Imaging
The neuroscience lab is equipped with multiple microtomes for paraffin embedded or frozen tissue preparation.
Introduction to Neuroscience and Advanced Neuroscience students use these devices to process brain tissue for analysis by fluorescent or bright-field microscopy.
Olympus digital microscopes (florescent, bright-field and phase contrast) allow students to view real-time images of tissue sections or capture images for off-line analysis.
AD Instruments Power Lab hardware permits analysis of EEG
