Learning the secrets of the brain
The Human Neuroscience Laboratory is a state-of-the-art research, teaching and service facility dedicated to studying the ways that the brain supports human behavior. The lab allows students and researchers to participate in basic and applied research in collaboration with clinical faculty while simultaneously providing brain-based health care services to residents of East Texas.
The goal of the Human Neuroscience Laboratory is to use the principles of neuroscience to understand the underlying causes of central and peripheral nervous system disorders in order to develop better methods of diagnosis and treatment. Laboratory research covers a broad array of topics, including:
- attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders
- acute and chronic pain
- traumatic brain injury
- eating disorders
- and sleep disorders.
The laboratory provides an excellent opportunity for students to work with experienced researchers and cutting-edge equipment on meaningful research that directly impacts human quality of life.
Services are free.

Equipment and capabilities
The Human Neuroscience Laboratory is equipped for a wide variety of neurological testing and analysis, including:
- quantitative electroencephalography for generating color-coded rain maps and event-related potentials
- measurement of sympathetic nervous system activation, including galvanic skin response, cardiac recording, temperature recording and tactile response
- neuropsychological testing for attention, executive function, language, visual perception and motor and memory skills
- recording of visual, auditory and tactile evoked potential
- eye tracking and coordination measurement
- and neurofeedback and biofeedback training equipment.
All equipment is housed in sound-shielded and electrically shielded rooms for optimal recording and analysis.
