Facilities and Equipment
The Psychology Department has active research laboratories that include a sophisticated collection of technological tools.
Our resources include video recording equipment and one-way observation rooms to permit behavioral analysis within a variety of situations, technology for behavioral studies of learning and drug effects in nonhuman animals, computer-based laboratories to investigate cognitive processes in humans, and physiological equipment to measure electrical brain or somatic activity and to track eye movements. Additional computer-based resources include software for statistical analysis and web-based survey collection. Students can expect to use some of these resources in their classes, with others typically encountered primarily while conducting directed or independent research or honors theses.
