We facilitate neurophysiological research

Research at our lab!

Core Facility for Neuroscience of Self-Regulation 

We are a Core Facility of the Field of Focus 4 (FoF4) „Self-Regulation and Regulation: Individuals and Societies“ at the Heidelberg University. We provide rooms, devices and other resources for neurophysiological research for all scientists at the University of Heidelberg. Our goal is to offer you the ideal environment for conducting neurocognitive studies in all areas. The CNSR is listed under the registration number RI_00552 in the research infrastructure database of the German Research Foundation.
Further details on the access and usage conditions can be found here.


CNSR receives further funding 

The CNSR has received a grant of € 136,530 from the FoF 4 Research Council. We will use these funds to expand our actiCHAMP EEG system from 64 to 128 channels and to procure the peripheral physiology extension module NIRxWINGS for the fNIRS systems at the CNSR.

CNSR Python-Toolbox Release 

Starting today, we are pleased to offer all users of the CNSR a Python-based toolbox for the analysis of the psycho-physiological data we collect. The cnsr-package includes a set of Jupyter notebook templates created by Dr. Daniel Holt (AE General Psychology) and Dr. Torsten Wüstenberg (CNSR) that contain basic functions for quality control, artifact cleaning, and feature extraction in EEG, fNIRS, EDA, EMG, and ECG data. The cnsr-package is available through Conda-Forge and PyPi. In this context, we would like to especially thank Dr. Dominic Kempf from the Scientific Software Center (SSC) at Heidelberg Universtity, who played a major role in the implementation of the CNSR toolbox. Information about download and installation can be found here.
