Upcoming & Recent Events
Machining & Prototyping Core
The Machining and Prototyping Core Facility involves the use of three major facilities within the University of Nebraska at Omaha Biomechanics Research Building: The Machine Shop, Design Studio, and the 3D Printing Laboratory. The most basic function of the Core is to provide services that utilize these spaces and their personnel and equipment. These services are for professional in the University of Nebraska system, the local area, but also to people outside our state to progress their research or other projects. This core can design, prototype, manufacture and repair, maintain, or install a wide range of devices and instrumentation.
Movement Analysis Core
The Movement Analysis Core provides resources, education, advisement and services related to the analysis of human movement. Equipment such as motion capture, dynamometry, electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography, functional near-infrared spectroscopy, virtual reality and high-speed digital video are provided. Contact the core for a comprehensive PDF of our facilities, resources and services.
Nonlinear Analysis Core
The Nonlinear Analysis Core provides resources and services necessary for innovative analysis of human movement. These methods go beyond averages by looking at the time-varying characteristics of a time signal. The Core provides access to a multitude of nonlinear analysis tools, assistance in experimental design, data processing, quality assurance, interpretation and dissemination. The Core is also actively exploring and validating new techniques and algorithms for future use. In addition to our nonlinear methods, standard analyses can also be performed.
Featured Collaborative Research Core
The Neuroimaging Core provides direct access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for multiple MRI modalities (e.g., structural T1/T2, functional, diffusion, perfusion, and spectroscopy), high density MEG, mobile electroencephalography (mEEG), and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). The Core also houses the latest tools for neuromodulatory research, including both conventional and high definition transcranial direct- and alternating-current stimulation systems (tDCS/tACS), and a fully-equipped transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system with stereotactic neuro-navigation tools. The Core provides access to cognitive assessment suites, high performance computing infrastructure, and the analytical expertise necessary to develop rigorous experiments, analyze the resulting neural data using cutting-edge methods (e.g., multimodal fusion, dynamic functional connectivity), and merge neuroimaging and cognitive assessment data using the latest approaches and statistical models.
