Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging devices offer researchers a way to image the structure, function and pharmacology of the brain. The combination of stimulation and imaging techniques is an exciting new discipline within the field.

  • Electroencephalography (EEG) can be used to measure electrical activity from the scalp produced by post-synaptic potentials, which can be time-locked to the presentation of an external stimulus (TMS pulse, visual, somatosensory or auditory) to measure an evoked potential (EP) or event-related potential (ERP).
  • Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) detects changes in blood haemoglobin concentrations associated with neural activity and is used within the field of Cognitive Neuroscience as a partial replacement for fMRI techniques.
  • Combined EEG allows for simultaneous recording and stimulation or recording with  other imaging techniques. Our EEG devices have been specifically designed to be used, unhindered, in conjunction with brain stimulation techniques such as TMS and tES as well as being used in combination with other imaging procedures, such as fMRI and fNIRS, and can be fully integrated with neuronavigation techniques.
