The Psychology Department's experimental work is supported by a range of research facilities. Principal Investigators and their groups are supported by state-of-the-art facilities including our own MRI scanner, which allows us to measure brain activity during various tasks. We also have a range of other facilities, including: closed circuit TV and video systems for discreet observation of behaviour; technology for tracking eye movements; systems for tracking body movements in very young children and adults; and the ability to create virtual reality environments.
