The Psychoscope is a piece of technology developed by the R&D team at Talos I to aide in the process of studying the Typhon organisms, and which allows Morgan Yu to research more alien type Neuromod's by scanning the Aliens.
The Psychoscope is a helmet like contraption with a built in view screen and a singular large cycloptic camera eye that is worn over Morgan's face.
As long as Morgan is wearing the Psychoscope, any Typhon organism that they encounter are scanned and data on them is added to a Research Database. Once enough data has been accumulated, a new alien type neuromod is made available to unlock.
Psychoscope also provides shielding against specific psi abilities - for example, Morgan is immune to mind control of Telepath.
