Clinical Psychophysiological Laboratory
To study the fundamental processes related to mental disorders and the accompanying psychotherapeutic process, our Clinical Psychophysiological Lab offers state-of-the-art infrastructure for conducting assessments and experiments within clinical studies including both patient populations and control samples. Our focus is to examine emotional and attentional processes over the entire life span.
Both experimental labs are equipped with a peripheral physiological acquisition system (Brain Amp ExG, Brain Products, Gilching) and a 32-channel EEG system (Brain Amp DC, Brain Products, Gilching). All peripheral physiological parameters of the sympathetic (e.g., skin conductivity, T-wave amplitude) and parasympathetic branch of the autonomous nervous system (e.g., heart rate variability), as well as central nervous activity (e.g., event related potentials, frontal asymmetry) can so be accurately recorded.
