- Overview: Our Sensorimotor Laboratory facilities include state of the art research equipment and resources designed to record high-resolution motor responses to a range of motor, cognitive and sensory tasks.
Eyelink 1000Hz eye-tracker (SR Research Ltd)
The Eyelink 1000Hz eye-tracker is a system that can record eye movements up to 1000 times/second to provide a detailed output of eye position, velocity and acceleration to identify visual strategies and performance during free viewing and or cognitive/motor tasks.

Pupil-Labs wearable eye-tracker
Pupil-Labs wearable eye-tracker is used for capturing eye movements when participants are in motion providing options of larger field of view for tracking gaze position. Accuracy is between 0.6 – 1.4 degrees of visual angle and is generally recorded at around 120Hz.

Pressure pain simulator
Pressure pain simulator is a custom-built system that is designed to induce vary levels of pain on the finger in order to assess pain threshold alongside other visual/auditory tasks.

Optotrak system (Qualysis Ltd)
Optotrak is designed to measure limb motion using video-based capture of markers attached to the body. Placement of markers can be specific to isolated limbs (e.g. hand and wrist) or can capture full body motion, such as during gait analysis.
