EEG + motion capture experiment
Thank you for your interest in my experiment!
The experiment involves moving your hand along a table to reach for targets, while I track the location of your hand with cameras. You will also be fitted with a cap containing sensors that measure the electrical activity of your brain!
This information sheet provides some background information about the project and the procedures involved. I have also implemented a number of safety measures to keep us all safe and healthy, which are outlined in this COVID safety plan. Please read both documents carefully before deciding whether you would like to participate. Please note that all participants (and the researcher) will be required to wear a mask during testing, and wash their hands when entering the lab.
If you would like to participate, please review the eligibility criteria below, and the information sheet, then sign up for a timeslot below.
Sessions last two hours, and can be completed any time on the days listed below. If you prefer a time other than 10am, just let me know.
Once you have signed up for a session, please complete the paperwork (below) and send it to me via email (provided in the documents).
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact with me via email.
Participants in this experiment must:
- have normal, or corrected-to-normal, hearing and vision
- be able to remove any headwear so that the cap can be fitted to the head (note that the experimenter is male)
- not currently be using any medication or substances that might influence perception or cognition
- be able to make repetitive reaching movements with their right hand without pain or discomfort
- be right-handed
During the session you will have an EEG cap fitted to your head. The cap contains 64 sensors that measure the electrical activity of your brain. In order to record this signal, I will need to inject some gel into the space between the sensor and your scalp. This is harmless and the gel washes out with water.
There is a bathroom available to wash your hair after the session, but you will need to bring your own towel and soap.
