About

Mobile Brain / Body Imaging (MoBI) is a new imaging modality, employing mobile brain imaging methods like the electroencephalogram (EEG) or near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) synchronized to motion capture and other data streams to investigate brain activity while participants actively move in and interact with their environment. Mobile Brain / Body Imaging allows to investigate brain dynamics accompanying more natural cognitive and affective processes as it allows the human to interact with the environment without restriction regarding physical movement. Overcoming the movement restrictions of established imaging modalities like functional magnetic resonance tomography (MRI), MoBI can provide new insights into the human brain function in mobile participants. This imaging approach will lead to new insights into the brain functions underlying active behavior and the impact of behavior on brain dynamics and vice versa, it can be used for the development of more robust human-machine interfaces as well as state assessment in mobile humans. At our lab we make use of state-of-the-art virtual reality headsets to mirror realistic task scenarios in a controlled experimental environment.

The president of the Technical University Berlin, Prof. Dr. Christian Thomsen, will officially open the Berlin Mobile Brain/Body Imaging Labs at 2 PM preceded and followed by demonstrations and scientific discussion of MoBI experiments.

 

You can sign up for the different demonstrations in the respective slots here and you will find additional information regarding the demonstrations below.

01 Demo – The Invisible Maze Task to Investigate Brain Dynamics of Spatial Learning (Lukas Gehrke; Lab 1)

Spatial learning usually requires integration of egcoentrically perceives sensory input with higher cognitive processes to build up spatial representations of the environment. These might include survey representations that are independent from the current position and orientation of the navigator. Different sensory inputs are used to support this kind of translation from egocentric to allocentric spatial representation. With this task we break down and control the visual input associated with exploratory thrust movements of the hand to build up a spatial representation.

In this demonstration you will experience the Invisible Maze Task (IMT) that allows you to explore an unseen virtual environment through touching movements (like in the dark to find a light switch). You will have to answer different spatial questions after exploring the environment using virtual response formats. There is time to discuss the advantages of MoBI over standard setups and how this contributes to a better understanding of spatial cognition.

Sign up here.

 

02 Demo – Visual perception and motor performance (Dr. Janna Protzak; Lab 1)

Visual information processing in real-life situations usually takes place during active behavior. Motor behavior itself – even basic forms as standing and walking – requires cognitive resources and therefore might impact other brain dynamics going on in parallel. To investigate the interplay of visual information processing and motor performance, we built a study setup including visual stimulus presentations in different motor task conditions (sitting, standing, walking).

In this demonstration, you will experience dynamic visual target presentations using LED-arrays and camera-based motion tracking information based on your relative position. The setup will be presented and a simple stimulus-response task example during walking can be tested. You will gain insights into our work with older participants in MoBI-setups and on our previous results. Discussions, questions and comments are welcome.

Sign up here.

 

03 Demo – Heading Computation in Actively Rotating Humans (Dr. Friederike Hohlefeld; Lab 1)

Studying brain activity in freely moving subjects is heavily confounded by motion-related artifacts in brain recordings. However, orienting yourself in the environment requires active body movements – therefore, our understanding of brain mechanisms underlying natural spatial orientation was traditionally limited. We overcome this obstacle by Mobile Brain-Body Imaging, and we focus on studying spatial representations of heading changes by means of EEG and motion capture in virtual reality.

In this demonstration, you will be guided through the experimental setup and theoretical underpinnings of the project. You will learn about how the human brain implements whole body movements and how these are used for spatial orientation. You will gain insights on limitations of previous “standard” experiments, and why the MoBI approach allows us to understand fundamental aspects of human cognition outside the classic lab in more natural environments.

04 Demo – Dual-Task Walking and Cognitive-Motor Interference in VR (Federica Nenna; Lab1)

Walking requires resources that are not available for a second task. This becomes obvious, for example, when pedestrians in front of you slow down while typing messages on their cell-phones. Here we address this kind of cognitive-motor interference in a virtual reality setup in which participants have to walk (as compared to standing) and respond to a secondary visual discrimination task to understand the brain dynamics underlying dual task control and ressource allocation.

In the demonstration, you will see the setup and experience the walking and standing task for a short time. You will walk along a virtual route and respond to different visual stimuli with the controller in your left and right hand. You will be able to understand the general setup including all data stremas used in this protocol as well as technical implementations that allow to present visual stimuli in VR dependent on the current head orientation of the participants. There will be time for discussion of the different setups and results of the experimental series.

05 Demo – Investigating spatial affordances in architecture using VR and EEG (Zakaria Djebbara, Lab 1)

Architects are aware of the possibilities for bodily movement their spaces offer. They have long known the impact on perception and affective evaluation of architecture. Sequences through space have in particular been of interest in this study. Transitions themselves can be defined in time by the juncture between two spaces, and spatially as a delineating threshold between them, generally revealing a possibility for passing the threshold. Here, we investigated transitions using openings as delineating threshold, to gain a deeper understanding of the perceived affordance of crossing the openings and how this impacts evaluation of the space.

In this demonstration, you will see the experimental setup utilized to measure motor-related cortical potentials (MRCPs). You will have to wait for a go/no-go cue and either pass through an opening between two adjacent rooms, or simply wait. You will experience physical passing through different openings and how this relates to affordances and active inference as well as emotional outcome.

06 Demo – Mobile Brain/Body Imaging for Situation Awareness (Marius Klug; Lab 2)

Situation Awareness (SA) is one of the key factors in ergonomics and defined as “The perception of the elements in the environment within a volume of time and space, the comprehension of their meaning and the projection of their status in the near future” (Endsley, 1988). SA, however, has rarely been examined using brain imaging techniques due to its complex mobile nature. Understanding brain correlates of SA and mental workload is thus a primary goal of the present experiment.

In this demo you will see a new mobile brain/body imaging setup, including electroencephalography, motion capture, eye tracking and a virtual reality head-mounted-display (HTC Vive). You can observe the eye-tracking in real-time in the virtual environment. You will play a short interactive game in which you have to distinguish target and distractor stimuli from each other while they fly towards you. React fast to touch the targets and avoid the distractors in four increasingly difficult levels.

07 Demo – Immersion in VR and its impact on prediction errors (Lukas Gehrke; Lab 2)

Immersion in virtual reality is an important prerequisite for investigating human cognition and affective states in VR experiments. However, to measure immersion, questionnaires or other obtrusive methods are used. Utilizing ongoing EEG activity to measure how immersed participants are in a given VR environment would allow to track the level of immersion without interrupting the VR experience. Ultimately, EEG parameters might be used to probe the user regarding his or her level of immersion in the VR.

In this demonstration, you will experience a simple object selection task in VR in two different conditions: in the first condition, you will perceive visual feedback only while in a second condition, you will perceive visual and tactile feedback whenever you “touch” a virtual cube. You will experience whether additional sensory stimulation makes you feel more immersed in the scenario. There is time for discussion of the results from this and previous experiments.

08 Demo – Incidental spatial learning through modified navigation instructions (Anna Wunderlich; Lab 3)

Navigation assistance systems support human navigating especially in multi-tasking situations like car driving. With the increasing use of assistance systems, however, less information about the spatial surrounding is processed and a decrease in orienting abilities can be observed. Here, we present a new approach to prevent the loss of orienting abilities by supporting spatial knowledge acquisition during the use of navigation assistance system by including landmark information in the instructions.

In this demonstration, you will see the experimental setup of one of the recent experiments from the Navigation Project at the BeMoBIL. Like the participants, you will watch the video of a route through Berlin following modified as compared to standard navigation instructions. You will experience the tasks participants were tested on after navigation, addressing different levels of spatial knowledge acquisition. There will be time for discussion of the different setups and results of the experimental series.

09 Demo – Neuroadaptive Technology to Balance Workload (Team Phypa; Lab 3)

Passive brain-computer interfacing allows computers access to aspects of their user’s cognition. As such, a computer system can gain information about its user without this user needing to explicitly communicate it: it is simply interpreted from ongoing brain activity. The computer can then adapt to its user’s state.

This demo involves a measure of workload. The participant is either cognitively engaged, for example solving an arithmetic task, or they are not. After a calibration session of a few minutes, the computer will attempt to detect this state in real time. When no engagement is detected, the computer will present visually attractive “sparkles” on the screen to occupy the participant, lest they get bored. However, when the participant is engaged, the computer must accurately detect this and remove the sparkles, so as not to distract the participant. This neuroadaptive technology thus attempts to maintain a proper level in engagement in the participant.
