Quick Overview

COGNITION LAB for non-profit research and education. Run cognitive tests within any modern web browser on your desktop, tablet or mobile.

Cloud based platform for Cognitive Experiments

Cognition Lab is a next generation cloud platform by BeriSoft that provides an unprecedented level of flexibility in designing and conducting cognitive experiments in the cloud.

Cognition Lab  provides a native web environment to define and execute cognitive tests in the cloud. In addition, Cognition Lab provides the same powerful scripting language as Berisoft’s popular ERTS product to define new experiments in a very simple and efficient way. In addition, 30+ configurable test paradigms are available to quickly setup student exercises or cognitive test batteries.

Besides the scripting language and library with ready to use test paradigms, Cognition Lab allows you to manage an experiment end to end from within a central web console. You can schedule any combination of tests at one or multiple measurement points and have all data immediately available for online reporting or CSV download.

With one Cognition Lab subscription you can create multiple user accounts to setup roles like study owner, experiment owner, lab assistant, data steward to support classroom scenarios or clinical trials. Role-based access control and a full audit trail make Cognition Lab the perfect platform for clinical trials that are governed by FDA/GCP regulations.

With Cognition Lab you have many different options how to enroll subjects in to experiments and administer tests.  You may launch tests directly from the web console to test subjects in your own lab, or send subjects a URL link to reach them in the field or at home, or post the URL for voluntary sign up. Since all tests are native HTML/Javascript web applications they can be executed on PC, Mac or tablet in a web browser without any installation.   Multiple sites can work on the same study, since all sessions are uniquely coded by subject number, measurement points and test.

For non-profit academic institutes, Cognition Lab is available in form of a subscription-based cloud service that gives staff and selected students access to the entire functionality of setting up and conducting experiments in the cloud. It is not priced by experiment or test execution.

Cognition Lab is a native cloud solution, meaning you need internet access and a modern web browser supporting HTML5/Javascript. Some advanced features like joystick for tracking, sine wave tone generation and speech recognition are only supported in Chrome browser.

Tests have been tested on PC, Mac, and common tablet platforms. Touch input is supported except for tests that require numeric key input or joystick
