FACILITIES, EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY

Albright’s psychology research labs feature state-of-the-art equipment:

  • Eye-tracking software, which allows researchers to track participants' eye movements as they view images to determine what they’re looking at and how long they examine different areas of an image

  • Physiological equipment to measure stress responses, including blood pressure, respiration, heart rate and galvanic skin response

  • EEG equipment to measure brain activity

  • Virtual reality equipment that allows researchers to place participants into an immersive 3D environment

All psychology students take Research Design
and Analysis, a class that involves designing
and participating in an experiment. Here Okema
Smith ’17 tests whether watching a funny or neutral video changes the perception of pain caused by putting your hand in ice-cold water.
