The Department of Psychology'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:

  • Sleep lab complete with two "bedrooms" and control room with EEG
  • Virtual Reality lab with eye-tracking enabled headsets
  • Eye-tracking lab with three sub-labs for tandem testing
  • Closed-circuit TV and video systems for discreet observation of behaviour
  • Systems for tracking body movements in very young children and adults
