Equipment

 

The EPL Facility includes:

  • Five laboratories for conducting behavioural experiments. 5 psychophysical laboratories for conducting behavioural experiments employing mainly visual stimulation. The laboratories are all equipped with desktop computers and high-performance monitors (https://vpixx.com/). Several laptops are also available. If necessary, the laboratories can be equipped with specific devices for visual stimulation (stereoscope) and eye movement control (three EyeLink 1000 systems with Desktop/Remote mounting and one EyeLink 1000 Plus system easily transportable outside the laboratories, https://www.sr-research.com/). In addition, a Tobii T120 (http://www.tobii.com), a device with a Tobii AB integrated monitor , is available for use;
  • One laboratory, equipped with an Eyelink 1000 Tower system (https://www.sr-research.com/), for investigating eye movements; 1 laboratory used to study eye movements, equipped with an Eyelink 1000 Tower system (https://www.sr-research.com/).
  • One multisensory laboratory, equipped with an anechoic and acoustically isolated cabin, for conducting studies involving different types of sensory stimulation; 1 multisensory laboratory, consisting of an anechoic, acoustically insulated booth and equipped to take electrophysiological measurements and to supply visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile stimuli (electro-tactile and vibro-tactile stimulation). a BIOPAC system (https://www.biopac.com/) for taking electrophysiological measurements and several devices for the delivery of visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile stimuli (electro-tactile and vibro-tactile stimulation) are available too.                  In addition there is a olfactometer Sniff-0 (Cynexo; https://www.cynexo.com/portfolio/sniff-0-olfactometer/), that is a computer-controlled instrument useful to deliver odor stimuli via cannulas birhinally placed in the participants’ nostrils. The olfactometer is currently equipped with four channels (the maximum number of channels is 13 + 1). It is easily transportable in the form of a normal suitcase and it is fMRI compatible. Moreover, Sniff-0 can be used in combination with another instrument, Spir-0 (Cynexo; https://www.cynexo.com/portfolio/spir-0-breathing-cycle-monitor/), to synchronize the activation of the odor channels with the breathing activity of each participant. In general, Spir-0 is able to monitor and record the respiratory activity of the participants.
  • One laboratory for conducting EEG studies. The laboratory includes a room for the set-up and preparation of the EEG cap, an anechoic and electrically shielded cabin for the recording of the EEG signals, and a room for the analysis of the EEG data, with three workstations. For the EEG recordings, a total of 4 BrainAmp DC amplifiers (https://www.brainproducts.com/) are available. The amplifiers can be combined together to create a system with up to 128 channels. Caps of different sizes, with passive (EASYCAP, https://www.easycap.de/) or active electrode sets (actiCAP, https://www.brainproducts.com/productdetails.php?id=68) are also available. If necessary, EEG signals can be recorded while monitoring eye movements with one of the EyeLink 1000 systems mentioned above;
  • Laboratories and equipment dedicated to conducting EEG studies.
  • One kinematic laboratory, equipped with the Qualisys motion-capture system, for conducting research related to quantitative measurements of limb movements. 1 kinematic laboratory equipped with a Qualisys motion-capture system, which provides quantitative measurements of human movements (mainly of the hands and arms).

 

All the laboratories are located in Palazzo Fedrigotti (Corso Bettini 31, Rovereto); most of them are located on the third floor of the dependance (also known as "palazzina").

The laboratories opening hours are

          8am – 7pm Monday to Friday
