VUMC Kennedy Center Core

Overview of Services

The VKC Psychophysiology Lab supports electroencephalography (EEG), event-related potentials (ERP), and eye tracking (ET) techniques, which allow researchers 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. Services are tailored to specific project needs, including consulting on paradigm design, developing an experiment, collecting psychophysiological data, processing data, completing statistical analyses, interpreting data, and assisting in preparing final reports for publication. Additionally, lab personnel train investigators and project staff on practical aspects and theoretical issues related to psychophysiology methods relevant to specific projects. Financial support may be available for small pilot studies to verify  protocol feasibility and acquire pilot data for grant proposals.
