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:
- 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
- the ability to create virtual reality environments.
Neuroimaging and Electropsychology facilities
