Department of Psychology (PSY)
Description of the Psychology Lab
The Psychology Laboratory is a new establishment that accompanies the Department of Psychology. The Lab is partitioned into two rooms by a one-way mirror: the operator’s room and the participant’s room. The configuration of the Lab supports the following types of studies: Single-participant study: the participant is usually involved in some computer-based tasks. Behaviour of the participant is observed remotely in the observer’s room via video recording equipment or computer screen capture software. Multiple-participant/observational study: a group of participants is usually involved. These can be focus group studies or interviews. The Lab has the necessary AV equipment to support real-time recording and monitoring of video or computer-based data.
