H24 Habituation

View Cart “Lead set, shielded, BSL” has been added to your cart.

This experiment will test a subject’s response level while being exposed to a series of pictures with one of the pictures being drastically different and repeated five times over the course of the presentation. The subject should experience habituation, and his/her electrodermal response and heart rate should continually decrease after each exposure to the aberrant image.

Experimental Objectives

  1. Monitor electrodermal response and heart rate during repeated presentation of a stimulus to demonstrate reduced response.
  2. Illustrate that habituation is a probabilistic trend toward decreased responding.

fNIRS High-Density Imaging Systems

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. The subject can sit in front of a computer and take a test or perform mobile tasks. Imaging System – fNIR103S: Imager […]
