The conditions and the rules for the access on the Institute's platforms can be found on the websites of the Matrix Platform (http://www.psytech.ro) and of the SkyRa Platform (http://www.clinicalpsychology.ro/skyra/).
The Matrix Platform includes a series of world-class VR and VR-related equipment that can be used in research and clinical services. VR systems: (1) the Virtual Irak system (including instruments for"VR -smelling") -part ofthe "Stress Control" Lab; (2) the Virtual Classroom system- part of the "Virtual Classroom" Lab etc. VR-related systems: (1) the SMI Eye-tracking Glasses; (2) Augmented reality systems (e.g., (iWear VR920/CamAR) etc.
A four wall virtual reality cave system (Eon icube) produced by Eon Reality(http://www.eonreality.com/eon-icube).
The lab has: (1) A 3 Tesla Simens Magnetom Skyra MRI (fMRI capable) with large bore (70 cm) and 32 channel head coil. Spinal coil, body coils, and flexible coils are also available for other clinical applications. Available imagistic applications include angiography, cardiology, abdominal, perfusion, diffusion tensor imaging, nervous tract visualization, functional imaging, spectroscopy and dynamic breast imaging. Parallel acquisition techniques and movement corrections are included (all coils are compatible for parallel acquisition). (2) A 32 channels EMS Pegasus/Phoenix clinical EEG system. It capable of FFT analysis, brain mapping and event potential registration and analysis. (3) A BIOPAC MP150 (https://www.biopac.com) amplifier for psychophysiological data recording and analysis, including the following modules: GSR / EDA, cardiac activity, respiratory frequency, pulse-oxymetry, and EMG.
The lab includes a VR system that was created by Virtually Better (VBI) and can be used for various anxiety disorders (e.g., phobias, social phobia), skills development, relaxation etc. (http://www.virtuallybetter.com/sales/). The lab also includes VR mobile equipment (e.g., Oculus Gear VR, dedicated mobile devices) and software applications to deliver similar psychological interventions in other settings.
The lab includes a VR system created and used for pain control (http://www.hitl.washington.edu/projects/vrpain/). The lab also has state of the art VR equipment (e,g., Oculus Rift, HTC Vive) to be used in various VR-based psychological interventions or experimental investigations using VR. (e.g., cognitive bias modifications/CBM;).
(1) Holopodium system produces by Eon Reality (http://www.eonreality.com/eon-holopodium) (2) Various robots (e.g., Pleo, Keepon, Romibo, Ono, Nao, Robonova etc.) used in Robotic-based psychotherapy.
The laboratory has full access to the equipment that is part of all other laboratories of in the Skyra or Matrix platforms, including a 3T Siemens Magnetom Skyra fMRI, a 32 channels EMS Pegasus/Phoenix clinical EEG system, and a BIOPAC MP150 amplifier for psychophysiological data recording.
