Our lab has VR equipment for the study of language learning in immersive virtual environments, including the HTC Vive, Google DayDream, EinScan Pro 2X, EMOTIV EPOC X 14, KAT Walk C, Manus Prime II Gloves, Insta360 Pro2, Microsoft HoloLens 2, MAD GAZE – VADER, and Oculus Quest.
For high-load simulations and analysis, we also use the University’s UBDA High-Performance Computing cluster. For MRI studies we use the facilities at the UBSN. Ample testing space is available in our lab for various cognitive and psycholinguistic experiments.
Brain Science and Language Technology Lab in Shenzhen
The Brian Science and Language Technology Laboratory at the PolyU Shenzhen Base is an innovation platform for the PolyU’s Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies at the Faculty of Humanities. We conduct research to understand the neural and computational bases of language representation and learning. Our research specifically addresses the questions of neuroplasticity, individual differences, and knowledge representation. To achieve these goals, we rely on a variety of convergent behavioral, computational, and neuroimaging methodologies and technologies (e.g., cognitive testing, artificial neural network modeling, VR, and functional magnetic resonance imaging).
