Welcome to The Brain Stimulation Lab @ HW

The lab is devoted to the study of body representation and disgust processing. 

Proreflex cameras and Qualysis Track Manager software

Movement of participants can be recorded by our motion analysis system (Qualisys Track Manager (QTM) (from Qualysis AB, Gothenburg, Sweden). This non-invasive system allows recording body movement (e.g. hands) by means of infrared cameras that register the light reflected by diodes attached to the participant’s body at 240Hz. The diodes can be attached through blue tack, without causing any pain or discomfort.
