Neural Design Suite. This neuroscience core facility is a state-of-the-art facility for rodent electrophysiology research located in the Petit IBB building. The available equipment consists of three major rigs that allow researchers to perform manual and/or automated in vitro and in vivo patch clamping, in vivo extracellular electrophysiology recording.
Noninvasive peripheral neural stimulation and recording mobile setup. This Neural Engineering Center shared resource is an all-inclusive compact mobile setup for both human and animal electrophysiology. The system includes high-speed data acquisition and control (National Instruments USB-6341) and electrical stimulation equipment for both animal (Digitimer DS3) and human (Digitimer DS7AH, FDA-approved) studies. The setup also includes a powerful laptop for loading custom control and acquisition software. Contact Robert Butera for more information.
CABI. The Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI) is a joint venture of Georgia State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The Center provides state-of-the-art neuroimaging facilities for studying brain-behavior relations in children and adults--including aged adults, and children with developmental disabilities like autism and ADHD. The CABI features a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system rated at 3 Tesla, which provides the power to observe details of electrical impulses and pathways in the brain. Other neuroimaging technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial Doppler sonography, as well as eye-tracking and numerous other psychophysiological techniques.
