NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY
The electroencephalography laboratory at the University of Witwatersrand provides a space for individuals to conduct research using the EEG. The EEG is able to record electrical activity, which takes place within the brain, by using electrodes that are placed on the scalp.
The university makes use of equipment from Deymed Truscan.
Ms Schutte's research interests lie in the cross cultural validity in neuropsychometric assessment; electrophysiological correlates of psychological phenomenon. She is a winner of the Vice Chancellors Teaching Award.
