Newest EEG lab empowers faculty from multiple disciplines

Nestled within the walls of Martha Van Rensselaer Hall, Cornell University's newest EEG Lab is a cutting-edge facility dedicated to unraveling the complexities of human cognition. EEG, or electroencephalography, is a noninvasive technique that measures the brain's electrical activity, providing valuable insights into neural processes.

“This new space is so special because it’s available to all researchers,” said Vivian Zayas, psychology professor and one of the lab’s inaugural faculty investigators. As a shared resource, the EEG lab empowers scientists from multiple disciplines to delve into the mysteries of the brain, the epicenter of everything we do, think and feel. Interdisciplinary department usage is critical because it could lead to breakthroughs in fields ranging from psychology to neurology to artificial intelligence.
