Research Facilities and Equipment

The research at the institute requires specific - mostly prototype - facilities and equipment. They are used mainly within a specific department, but interdepartmental use is also possible. Additionally, guest scientists and partners from universities and other institutions collaborating with us, are using these facilities.

Brain Imaging Facilities

Siemens 9,4 Tesla MR whole body system
With imaging techniques, such as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoenzophalography (MEG) or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) the processes in the brain can be investigated. Brain activity can be recorded even directly or indirectly and interpreted by a computer system [more]

Virtual Reality Laboratories

Virtual Reality equipment enables scientists to provide sensory stimulus in a controlled Virtual World and to manipulate or alter sensory input which would not be possible in the real world [more]
 

Face and Motion Capture

For recordings of faces and human activities in general we have  the VideoLab and the ScanLab.
The data is used for producing stimuli for psychophysical experiments and for building models to support machine learning and computer vision algorithms [more]
 

Chemistry Laboratory

Chemistry Laboratory
For the synthesis of smart contrast agents several highly equipped laboratories are available in the Magnetic Resonance Center (MRC) and in the neighbouring Technologiepark building [more]
