Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Cognitive Studies


The Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Cognitive Studies conducts research on cognitive functions such as attention, inhibition, working memory and higher-level cognitive processes (reasoning and decision-making). The main areas of researcher include cognitive psychopathology, cognitive aging, and social cognition.

In addition to traditional research methods, ICACS uses two types of eye trackers - devices for measuring eye movements and a device for measuring brain activity - a 64-channel EEG.

EEG Laboratory

The EEG Laboratory allows researchers to conduct interdisciplinary studies, which require the use of an electroencephalogram. The Lab offers three 64-channel electroencephalograms, one with hydro-cell electrodes and two with solid-gel electrodes. Researchers may also use an eye-tracking equipment in combination with the EEG and eye-tracking tests.
