Laboratory Overview NueroTech Lab logo

Established in 2015, the NeuroTech Lab is one of the core research laboratories in the Health Equity Institute at San Francisco State University. The NeuroTech Lab encompasses faculty and students united by a common interest in the impact of violence and trauma on human behavior in underrepresented populations, with the purpose to develop technical solutions that improves the lives of these individuals, their families, and their communities.

Instrumentation

Researchers in the NeuroTech Lab provide training in a variety of modern behavioral and technological techniques necessary to approach questions of interest. To support this work, the NeuroTech Lab contains a wide range of biomechanical equipment including:

  • Eight-camera Vicon motion analysis system
  • WristBot integrated robotic system
  • SMI mobile eye tracking glasses
  • Oculus rift virtual reality systems
  • Memsense wireless inertial measurement units
  • Myo gesture control armbands
  • Plato vision occlusion goggles
  • LulzBot TAZ 5 3D printer

Integration of these technologies allow us to study the interplay between the central and peripheral nervous systems in a variety of external environments.
