The Psychology Department hosts a range of state-of-the-art facilities and equipment used for both teaching and research purposes.
Across the department there is a broad range of expertise in neuroscience and related disciplines, and specialised equipment includes a new 128-electrode electroencephalogram system (EEG, BioSemi) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation equipment (TMS, MagStim).
Psychology teaching and research resources available to staff and students also includes eye-tracking (Tobii) and use of the Biopac System to record various psychophysiology measures such as ECG, heart rate and blood pressure, electro dermal activity (EDA), respiratory rate, and pulmonary function , as well as a cold pressor testing kit.
Specialist psychology laboratory cubicles offer a place for students to conduct individual projects, and there are two large Apple Mac labs specifically adapted for psychology teaching.
Psychology lab classes include hands on experience with psychophysiological measurements such as ECG, EDA, respiratory rate etc.
Psychology lab classes also involve neuroscience equipment such as EEG.
The observational facilities are equipped with Macs throughout.
Students work in the Mac-equipped Psychology Computer Labs.
The Neuroscience lab includes a state of the art electroencephalogram (EEG) system with 128 electrodes (BioSemi).
The Neuroscience lab includes transcranial magnetic stimulation equipment (TMS, Magstim).
