VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY

HIT centre is equipped with highly immersive virtual reality helmets and augmented reality glasses. The lab also has a mixed-reality space called eXperience Induction Machine (XIM2), Body haptic interfaces and vibrotactile and data gloves. Further technologies are: high definition monitors, autostereoscopic 3D displays, last generation powerful computers and videorecording digital equipment. The lab also includes a riding training simulator.

EYE TRACKING

The HIT centre is equipped with several remote and head-mounted devices that allow to monitor the eye movements, several pupillometric indices and other eye-related measures (e.g. saccades, microsaccades, blinks). These tools can be coupled with other instruments in order to concurrently co-register different physiological signals (e.g. EEG, EDA, fEMG, HR). All these equipments are useful in investigating the research field of social and cognitive ergonomic (e.g. human-computer interaction).

PHYSIOLOGICAL AND NEURAL MEASUREMENT

HIT centre is equipped with several systems that allow the aquisition and elaboration of psychophysiological signals resulting from the activities of both the central nervous system (electroencephalographic signals) and the peripheral nervous system (e.g. heart rate, electrodermal activity, respiration rate).

TDCS/TMS

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) are both non-invasive methods for stimulating parts of the brain. TMS and TDCS are active neuro devices, in the sense that they change the firing rates and activity levels of neurons, and groups of neurons in the brain. Major differences between TMS and TDCS are described below.

VIDEO RECORDING, EDITING AND ANALYSIS

In qualitative research, it is crucial for the researcher to ask whether, in light of his or her object and goals, it would be more appropriate to conduct systematic observations, to produce a handwritten or recorded field journal, to conduct interviews (structured or not), to photograph, to videotape and so on. The proper response to these questions will determine, to some extent, the quality, scope, adequacy and feasibility of the empirical data gathered.
