Visual stimulation for fMRI
The VisualSystem is a VR goggle solution with integrated eye-tracking, used for presenting visual stimuli to a patient during their fMRI scan. By displaying sharp images and brilliant colours, the product allows the operator to easily present high-quality graphics or text to the patient.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a functional neuroimaging procedure using MRI technology that measures brain activity by detecting changes associated with blood flow.
Scientific studies indicate that the presentation of visual stimuli in fMRI experiments is more reliable with direct input through video goggles than with the use of conventional projection systems. Because the VisualSystem is placed close to the eyes, individuals are less likely to experience discomfort related to the confined space of the MRI scanner.
