Qualisys offers a MR-compatible, total motion capture solution –from shielded cables and a modified calibration kit to custom made MR-compatible cameras and mounting solutions.
Qualisys is proud to announce the recent installation of a MR-compatible motion capture system at New York University – Department of Psychology.
The system will primarily be used by researchers from the Curtis Lab, headed by Clayton Curtis, Ph.D.
The Curtis Lab, part of NYU’s department of psychology, uses functional magnetic resonance imag-ing (fMRI) and eye-tracking to study how incoming sensory information is used, along with internal goals, to select the best choice of action. fMRI is similar to clinical MRI, but instead of making pic-tures of the anatomy of the brain, fMRI allows researchers to measure and cha-racterize brain function.
The new, real-time motion capture system will add a third dimension to their research by making biomechanical data, collected from tiny, retro-reflective markers attached to the subject’s hands, available synchronously to MRI and eye-tracking data.
