Equipment and possibilities for researchers?

▪ You can make reservations for the rooms A6-2-201 and A6-2-202. In A6-2-201 we have computers with E-Prime installed on them, this is where you can set up new experiments. In order to work with E-Prime you will need the E-Prime key. In case you need it, please let us know via e-mail to .

▪ The computers in A6-2-201 require a password. Students and staff members can use their university account passwords. Since E-Prime is installed on a local server only, you will need yet another user name and password in order to use it. You will find a note with those data on the table.

▪ In A6-2-202 we have a soundproof booth, EEG devices and an eye tracker. You can also do reaction time studies there. For the evaluation of EEG data you will have to use a special computer in A6-2-202 that has an Eeprobe license installed on it.

▪ The computers in A6-2-202 do not require a password. They work with either Windows XP or Windows 7 and have Opensuse installed.

▪ There are printed and digital versions of the handbooks for the EEG- and eye tracking devices. In case you have a problem, please make sure to consult the handbooks first for a solution.

▪ Before starting EEG- or eye tracking studies you will need the official permission of the person responsible for the lab. Please contact .

 ▪ The computers as well as the EEG- and eye tracking devices have to stay in their proper places.

▪ In case you have problems with the equipment (computers, EEG, eye tracker) please report to .

▪ Before downloading software onto the computers you will need permission.
