fMRI and psychophysiology data

Physiological data collection during magnetic resonance imagining (MRI) requires special consideration. Researchers need to ensure strong physiological signals while avoiding potential dangers for the participant. Understanding the issues around safety, set up and specialized equipment is important when collecting psychophysiology data inside the scanner. Jennifer Robinson, Ph.D., Auburn University, expert in functional MRI & psychophysiology, will present recommendations for successful fMRI data collection. Join Dr. Robinson and Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, for a deep dive into the world of fMRI data collection.

What You Will Learn

  • The unique issues/problems with acquiring psychophysiological data in MR environments (including ultra-high field environments)
  • How to overcome those issues/problems
  • Identifying the correct devices and techniques for collecting great data
  • Video demonstrations of psychophysiological collection in the MR environment
  • Common mistakes/pitfalls in the collection of MR physiological data

About Jennifer Robinson, Ph.D.
Jenny Robinson Ph.D.

Jennifer L. Robinson, Ph.D. received her Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University in experimental psychology, where she was trained on psychophysiological methods. She completed a psychiatric neuroimaging postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Following her postdoctoral fellowship, she created and directed a functional neuroimaging program at Scott & White Healthcare (now Baylor Scott & White) in Temple, Texas, where she combined psychophysiological methods and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Dr. Robinson is currently an Associate Professor at Auburn University, where she directs the Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences Ph.D. program as well as her laboratory, the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory, which utilizes a MR-compatible psychophysiological suite. Her research revolves around understanding the complex relationships between the brain and body as they relate to emotional processes, stress, and cognition. Additionally, she continues to pursue new techniques and methods using ultra high field neuroimaging, especially with regard to integration of psychophysiological measurements.
