National Eye Institute
The National Eye Institute (NEI) conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight, and the special health problems of individuals who are visually impaired or blind. Vision research is supported by the NEI through research grants and training awards made to scientists at more than 250 medical centers, hospitals, universities, and other institutions across the country and around the world. The NEI also conducts laboratory and patient-oriented research at its own facilities located on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
Level 1 Corporate Member
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.

NIRx Medical Technologies
NIRx Medical Technologies, LLC is a globally recognized leader in providing comprehensive solutions for functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) research. The versatility of fNIRS has seen a significant increase in its application in vision science. The technique allows for the measurement of neural activity in the visual cortex and large-scale cortical networks and is useful in investigating the neural mechanisms underlying visual attention and perception. Additionally, fNIRS is employed in studying the effects of visual deprivation or visual training. Its non-invasive and user- and subject-friendly nature makes it an ideal tool for monitoring changes in neural activity during the development of the visual system in infants and children. Furthermore, it is increasingly used in researching changes in neural activity related to visual disorders and the changes resulting from treatment.
NIRx offers a complete range of research solutions, including a versatile multimodal hardware platform, advanced online and offline analysis software, expert technical and scientific support, and comprehensive training programs.
We are committed to supporting fNIRS researchers through our offices in Orlando, New York and Berlin, Germany. For further details on our solutions, please do not hesitate to contact us at +49 308 1453 5990 (EU), (+1) 321-352-7570 (US/Canada), or come and visit our booth at the VSS meeting.
