The Royal Holloway Baby Lab is a research facility in the Department of Psychology. We study the development of cognitive abilities during infancy, including memory and thinking. We invite you and your baby to help us explore this exciting period of development.
Virtual Reality lab
The Virtual Reality lab opened in the Psychology department in 2019. It is a multi-disciplinary space that is open to Psychology, Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. The lab is equipped with Oculus and HTC Vive headsets, which are eye-tracking enabled using Tobii technology. For a full list of equipment and software click here.
