EEG and Co-Registration Laboratory

The EEG and Co-Registration Laboratory is used by members of the Perception, Cognition, and Neuroscience research group (including interns, MSc and PhD students, postdoc and visiting scholars) to investigate language, perception, and face processing.

The laboratory is equipped with a Faraday cage, EEG, and eye tracking systems to record adults’ EEG signal alone or simultaneously with participants’ eye movements.

Members of the EEG and Co-Registration Laboratory record participants’ EEG signal alone or simultaneously with eye movement recordings to investigate cognitive processes as they occur millisecond-by-millisecond.
