Behavioural Laboratories

The College has three behavioural laboratories, which are used by students and faculty who are conducting experimental psychology, human-computer interaction, or human neuroscience research. Each laboratory contains numerous computers that are equipped to run a variety of experiments. Additional research materials include a head-mounted eye-tracker, noise-cancelling headphones, vibrotactile rings, and audiovisual recording equipment. More information about such resources can be found here.
