DuoMAG™ XT – rTMS Magnetic Stimulation

The new DuoMag XT rTMS device offers the latest features and tools needed to perform any rTMS protocol or study.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain. This is accomplished by using eletromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents via rapidly changing magnetic fields. These magnetic fields affect specific or general parts of the brain with minimal discomfort, allowing the functioning and interconnections of the brain to be studied. Recent research has shown that rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) may be effective as a treatment tool for various neurological and psychiatric disorders including: Depression, Parkinson’s Disease, Tinnitus and Auditory Hallucinations.

 

 

DuoMAG™MP-Dual – Dual Monophasic Stimulator

Advanced Dual-Monophasic magnetic stimulator for clinical and research use.

DuoMAG MP-Dual combines two DuoMAG MP units to provide fully programmable paired pulse stimulation through a single stimulating coil. By controlling the pulse intervals and power level of each DuoMAG MP, it is possible to provide precise sub- and supra-threshold conditioning and test pulses. This is useful for the investigation of Inter-Cortical and Intra-Cortical Inhibition and Facilitation.
The inter-stimulus interval (ISi) of the two pulses is adjustable with the following methods:
The first is via the supplied touch-screen programmable interface. This allows the programming of the following ISi intervals:

0 – 6 ms @50 µs resolution
6 – 12 ms@ 100 µs resolution
12- 24 ms @200 µs resolution
24- 60 ms @500 µs resolution
60- 120 ms@ 1 ms resolution
120 – 240 ms @2 ms resolution
240 – 600 ms @5 ms resolution
The second is via external triggering of two TTL inputs, one for each stimulator, offering complete user flexibilityof the ISi setting

The DuoMAG MP-Dual also allows the possibility of pulse shaping by overlapping the two independent pulses. This is programmable either in the supplied user interface or for even greater resolution via the two independent TTL inputs. When the ISi is set to zero, the resulting sum of the two single pulses provided by the DuoMAG MP stimulators produce a single high power pulse equal to 140% of a single DuoMAG MP. It is also possible to connect two individual coils for additional uses including interhemispheric stimulation.

MRI 3D

3DPolarizer

The DepthQ circular polarizer is driven directly by the PROPixx projector. Our custom driver ensures symmetric 50 microsecond switching times and minimal crosstalk at up to 400 FPS. Polarizer placement is straightforward. Simply place it in front of the projection lens. Passive 3D glasses are widely available in a variety of form factors, and most are 100% plastic, rendering them suitable for MRI environments. This solution is much simpler than trying to align superimposed left/right eye images, as is required when using dual projector setups.

SOUNDPixx MRI stereo sound system delivers true stereo music to the subject. Stereo sound provides a spacious feeling for the subject, which is an important factor in overcoming claustrophobia.

There are separate audio level adjustments for the subject and the speakers in the area where the technologist is located. The operator can independently control their sound level without affecting the subject sound levels. If so desired, the music can be turned off in the operator area, and only heard by the subject.

MRI Visual Stimulus Displays

PROPixx

The PROPixx is a unique DLP LED projector which has been designed to be the most flexible display possible for vision research. The PROPixx features a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, and can be driven with refresh rates up to 1440 Hz with deterministic timing. The PROPixx uses high brightness LEDs as a light source, giving a larger color gamut and much longer lifetime than halogen light sources (60,000 hrs vs 2,000 hrs). Our LEDs also support high bit depth, and high frequency full color stimulation, which would not be possible with a color-wheel/halogen architecture. For stereo vision applications, our high speed circular polarizer can project stereoscopic stimuli for passive polarizing glasses at up to 400 Hz.

The PROPixx also includes an array of peripherals which often need to be synchronized to video during an experiment. These include a stereo audio stimulator, a button box port for precise reaction-time measurement, triggers for electrophysiology and eye-tracking equipment, and even a complete analog I/O subsystem. You can now successfully synchronize all of your subject I/O to video refresh with microsecond precision.

The PROPixx is available with multiple projection lens options including short-throw lenses for CRT-replacement applications, and long-throw lenses for MRI/MEG applications.

As with all VPixx Technologies products, the PROPixx is field upgradable. If you need a new feature in order to follow some exciting new direction in your research, we can develop the functionality in our labs, then email you an update for your PROPixx.
