Controlling Multiple Degrees of Freedom in Complex Tasks During Multimodal Brain Imaging.


In order to investigate neural processes underlying complex perceptual motor control in experimental environments (fMRI and MEG) such that the results generalize to real world situations it is necessary to be able to utilize flight controls resembling those that exist in the real world. In accomplishing this goal fiber optic controllers (Control Stick, Rudder Pedals, Throttle Quadrant/Speed Brake) were constructed that are capable of working in fMRI and MEG environments without producing artifacts.
