The Lumina LP-400 is a reliable patient response system designed specifically for use in an fMRI. 

Lumina was developed to satisfy the requirements of both the clinical and research fields. Despite using fiber optics, the keys in a Lumina response pad are very solid and can take a lot of abuse. They are even water resistant.

Lumina fMRI Button System

  • The system consists of the following main components:

    A controller (shown on the right) provides TTL and serial port output that is compatible with E-Prime, Presentation, SuperLab, Cambridge Research Systems, and other packages. The controller provides a scanner trigger input as well.
