King Laboratory Facilities

Angular and Linear Motion Simulator

The King Laboratory is located on the second floor of the Medical Science I Building (Room 2405). Two laboratories are fully equipped for electrophysiological studies of neural activity. Vestibular stimulation (angular rotation or linear acceleration), a variety of computer-controlled visual stimuli and binocular and 3D-eye movement recording systems are available. Several computers are available (Macs, SGI workstations and PCs) with sophisticated data acquisition and analysis tools (MATLAB, Simulink, Spike2). Office space is provided for staff, fellows and students within the laboratory.

A unique attribute of the King Laboratory is its close proximity to and association with the clinical Vestibular Testing Center (VTC) at the University of Michigan Health System and the Human Vestibular Research Laboratory in the VTC.
