In our lab (hard- and software), we can create auditory and visual stimuli to be run in real-time under a wide variety of experimental protocols. With our dummy head we can record natural sounds and measure sound pressure level. We can perform audiometrics, register behavioral and multi-channel EEG data, electrodermal and cardiovascular activity. With this, we address questions in auditory and visual information processing, (working) memory, learning, attention and emotion, and the predictive nature of the human information processing system.


The Biological Psychology Unit has the following equipment (Hard- and Software):

  • 3 electrically and acoustically shielded experimental chambers (IAC)
  • BrainAmp DC 128-channel EEG-amplifier
  • BrainAmp DC 32-channel EEG-amplifier
  • BioSemi ActiveTwo 128-channel EEG-amplifier
  • Zebris CMS20 3D-Digitizer
  • SR Research Eyelink 1000
  • SR Research Portable Duo
  • 2 ViewPixx/EEG displays
  • Dummy head for recording natural sounds and measuring sound pressure level (Head Acoustics)
  • Scripting and control of experiments:
    • 3 Ubuntu Linux workstations with Octave, MATLAB and Psychtoolbox and ASUS Xonar Essence STX II 7.1 sound deviced
  • Analysis systems
    • DELL PowerEdge R7525 server with 64 cores, 256 GB RAM, 82 TB HD
    • BrainVision Analyzer
    • EEGLAB, Fieldtrip and other MATLAB toolboxes
