VPixx Technologies welcomes the vision science community to VSS 2022. This year VPixx celebrates our 21th anniversary, and we are marking this special occasion with the launch of two new tools for your research: the LabMaestro Pack&Go Remote Testing Tool and the LabMaestro Hardware Simulator.
Over the past two years, the need for remote data collection platforms has become clear. The VPixx team has created LabMaestro Pack&Go, a tool for remote data collection for MATLAB/Psychtoolbox-based experiment protocols, and other test platforms. With Pack&Go researchers can deploy MATLAB/Psychtoolbox experiments to remote participants on a local or global scale, while monitoring communication performance to ensure data quality. This tool allows researchers to test participants using the subject’s own personal computer, with no MATLAB/Psychtoolbox installation required. Visit our booth if you would like to learn more, or to participate in a Psychtoolbox Pack&Go experiment!
VPixx Technologies is known for our innovative hardware for vision research. The PROPixx DLP LED video projector, supporting refresh rates up to 1440Hz, has become a standard for neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and behavioral vision research applications. The TRACKPixx3 2kHz binocular eye tracker and the DATAPixx3 I/O hub offer microsecond-precise data acquisition synchronized to stimulus presentation. This year we launch the LabMaestro Hardware Simulator, a software tool that simulates VPixx hardware, allowing researchers to develop and test experiment protocols while the physical instruments are in use or unavailable. Visit our booth if you would like to learn more!
Peter April, Jean-Francois Hamelin, and the entire VPixx Team wish you well.

The Psychonomic Society is a community of over 4,300 cognitive and experimental psychologists from more than 60 countries around the world. Members include some of the most distinguished researchers in the field. Many are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology, and education. What brings us together is that we study the basic, fundamental properties of how the mind works by using behavioral techniques to better understand mental functioning.
Our most innovative research uses converging methods from behavioral measurement, neuroscience, computational modeling and other fields to achieve our research goals. Members of the Society conduct research on questions concerning memory, learning, problem solving, decision making, language, attention, and perception. We also connect with research in biology, chemistry, statistics, computer science, medicine, law, and business.
We achieve our objectives by hosting meetings around the world, publishing seven world-class, peer-reviewed journals, disseminating our research, and funding workshops and symposia.

Rogue Research Inc.
Rogue Research has been your partner in neuroscience research for over 20 years. As developers of the Brainsight® family of neuronavigation systems for non-invasive brain stimulation, we have helped make transcranial magnetic stimulation more accurate and more reproducible while keeping it simple and effective. 20 years and 600 laboratories later, Brainsight® continues to evolve to meet the needs in non-invasive brain stimulation and has expanded into functional brain imaging. Brainsight® NIRS combines the power of neuronavigation to ensure accurate placement of NIRS optodes with our NIRS hardware that incorporates low-profile, TMS, MRI and MEG compatible.
Rogue Research has expanded beyond navigation to develop our own, next-generation, TMS device: Elevate™ TMS. Elevate™ TMS offers control over the pulse shape to ensure more reproducible excitatory or inhibitory effects on the targeted network. While Brainsight® ensures accurate targeting and Elevate™ TMS ensures reliable circuit interaction, Rogue Research is actively developing a robotic positioner to ensure that the plan is accurately and efficiently carried out. The unique design will ensure reachability and simplicity.
Rogue Research also offers our Brainsight® Vet line of neurosurgical and neuronavigation tools for animal research. Come see our new, navigated microsurgical robot, which is the most accurate animal stereotaxic system on the market. We also offer custom MRI compatible implants and a line of MRI coils and testing platforms.
