Week 2 is off to a fantastic start! Everything has been going very smoothly, but one specific task popped up that was more challenging than the rest: setting up the VNG Machine.
Now you may be wondering, "Matthew, what's a VNG machine?". Great question. Basically this is a $26,000 machine that tracks eye movements and displays the data in graphical form. The old one broke and we needed to set the new one up for patients coming in the next couple days. The whole kit comes with a a laptop and the necessary software. Myself, another intern (Darian), and our coworker Adam were confused as how to set everything up. To solve this we read the manuals, toyed around with it, and consistently tested the machine/buttons until we got the thing working.
Since I don't have photos, I'll post some videos from this experience:
