Design your own experiment
With BlinkLab’s advanced experiment design capabilities, you have the flexibility to create the perfect study for your research needs. Choose from a variety of stimulus modalities, including flash, noise, tone, custom shapes or images, and program unlimited tracks with millisecond precision.
Whether you’re studying perception, cognition, or any other area of neuroscience or psychology, BlinkLab’s powerful design options give you the control to create the ideal experiment.
BlinkLab brings the power of classical neuroscientific test method, eyeblink conditioning, to your smartphone. Based on the experiments of Pavlov, this method is used to probe specific parts of the brain and has been shown to be impaired in various diseases including autism spectrum disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and psychiatric conditions.
By smartly combining visual and audio cues and utilizing the smartphone’s hardware, BlinkLab allows you to conduct large scale, at-home testing with various variations of eyeblink conditioning.
Prepulse Inhibition of Startle
BlinkLab’s Prepulse Inhibition of Startle test allows you to study the brain’s ability to filter out irrelevant information using a simple, classical method. By measuring the response to a startling sound and the ability to suppress that response when it is preceded by a softer version of the same stimulus, this test is widely used in neuroscience and psychiatry. Our team has adapted it for use on smartphones, making it easy to conduct large-scale studies with at-home testing.
Prepulse Inhibition of Startle has been shown to be impaired in various neurological conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia and various forms of dementia.
Explore the brain’s ability to reduce behavioral response to a startling stimulus with Startle Habituation, a simple and elegant test from BlinkLab. This reduction, which does not involve sensory or motor fatigue, is a fundamental mechanism that protects the brain from sensory overload. Previously evaluated as a by-product of prepulse inhibition of startle experiments, Startle Habituation can now be conducted on a large scale using at-home testing.
This test has been shown to be affected in various diseases including autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury.
