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. 

Co-registration is a new and non-invasive technique that allows to precisely time-lock brain potentials to oculomotor events (i.e., fixations and saccades) and examine the electrical brain activity associated with cognitive processes that occur within an eye fixation. Using this methodological approach, we aim to untangle the time course of the foveal and parafoveal processes that underlie human cognition.

If you are interested in forming a collaboration, joining the lab during a research visit, or you are a prospective PhD student interested in joining the team, please contact a lab member by email.
