HBBL facilities include three main integrated components, reflecting the goal of connecting brain and behavior on different spatial and temporal scales.


The 128-channel Neuroscan and 85-channel Manscan EEG systems (including dual EEG capability), and the 1.5T system available at UMRI:

The 275- and 163-channel MEG capability by virtue of ongoing collaborations at NIH Core Facility (R. Copolla, Director) and the Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto (D. Cheyne).

Probing cognitive and motor behavior

The VICON/OPTOTRACK lab and specialized equipment for generating displays and recording cognitive and motor behavior:

The HBBL has also developped the Virtual Partner Interaction (VPI) paradigm, a unique Human Dynamic Clamp which allows the real-time interaction between human subjects and dynamical models.
