The VKC Psychophysiology Lab supports researchers in investigating psychophysiological correlates of observed behavioral profiles in infants, children, and adults with typical and atypical development. Lab users receive access to electroencephalography (EEG), event-related potentials (ERP), and eye tracking (ET) techniques, which allow them to collect more extensive data than would be available using standard behavioral assessments alone, leading to new insights about the neurodevelopmental processes, brain-based markers of risk for adverse developmental outcomes, and additional objective measures of treatment effects.
