The University of Birmingham has recently been awarded a research equipment grant by the BBSRC UK, to purchase a Qualisys ProReflex 3D Motion Tracking System.
This system will be used in the new MRI functional imaging unit at Birmingham University (BUIC). The full system will include the motion tracker, 6 MR compatible 240 Hz cameras, as well as the Qualisys Track Manager Software and Visual3D. The system is to be used by Professors Alan Wing, Chris Miall, Glyn Humphreys and their research teams, for studies on perception and action.
“In combination with other dedicated MR compatible equipment provided by the BBSRC and the MRC for measuring arm movements, eye movements and controlling a force manipulandum, the Qualisys motion tracking system will form a unique laboratory for functional imaging of action.”
