New! Affective Immersive Emotional Virtual Reality Stimuli Systems for Neuroscience Research
Complete Researcher Control, Ready-to-Run Scenarios, Fully Customizable

aLIAS allows users to adjust the order of the stimulation, control the inter-stimulus interval, and ambient sound and other sound effects without the need for programming. This ready-to-run series of scenarios is a plug-and-play system for the Oculus DK2* head mounted display. The range of scenarios will increase and customers can develop their own content. The source code for the aLIAS system is available for further development.

aLIAS Features

  • Delivery of 3D stimuli through virtual reality
  • Used for the study of emotion
  • Real-life scenarios, not static images
  • High degree of experiment control
  • Physiological response recorded with the stimulus presentation
  • Event markers recorded with the physiological data for analysis

aLIAS enables researchers to take experimental investigations of emotion and attention to the next level!

VR for Neurophysiology and Neuromarketing

Inducing an emotional state in laboratory settings requires researchers to use various techniques approximating the immersion of the participant in a real-life situation. Such techniques could involve reading stories, looking at pictures and videos, using actors. These methodologies suffer, in various degrees, from limitations in ecological validity and/or experimental control.

Developed in partnership with WorldViz, aLIAS packages provide a unique and pioneering system that utilizes the latest HMD technology from Oculus to create a sophisticated stimulation solution that is truly budget friendly.

aLIAS virtual reality based stimulation protocols deliver lifelike stimulation while maintaining very high experimental control. A collection of stimulation scenarios has been created and is constantly augmented—it is designed so that researchers can expand it easily.

Physiological data can be recorded throughout the experiment and markers for events and conditions are automatically added to the physiological data record over the network. The physiological data is recorded using the wireless BioNomadix and MP150 System with AcqKnowledge 4.4.1 or higher and a Network Data Transfer (NDT) License

This package adds aLIAS VR components to an existing BIOPAC MP150 System:

  • Vizard Virtual Reality Toolkit
  • Computer for aLIAS & Oculus (aLIAS-PC)
  • aLIAS VR Source Code (aLIAS-SRC)
  • AcqKnowledge 4.4.1 with NDT Network Data Transfer License

Record physiological data with existing MP System amplifiers/transducers to complete any protocol—wired and wireless solutions available.

fNIR Imaging Education System

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. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
