Updates to Asteroid Impact Stimulus

Our lab helped develop the naturalistic and open-sourced video game stimulus Asteroid Impact. We are now making additional improvements to enhance its utility and allow the game to interface with physiological measurement equipment. For a detailed summary of the changes, or to download Asteroid Impact for your own use, visit the game’s page on GitHub.
