Our specialist facilities include high specification computing labs with software for designing experiments, and a range of psychological recording equipment.
We also have a variety of resources that have both research and teaching applications:
- We can non-invasively examine the processing in the brain associated with different stimuli. For example, the millisecond-by-millisecond processing that occurs when someone is attempting to understand a word, or recognise a face.
- We can measure the dynamic changes that occur in the cardiovascular system. For example, how blood pressure changes on a second-by-second basis when a person is stressed.
- We can test people's responses to painful stimuli. For example, a person's fight-or-flight response when their hand is submerged in ice-cold water using our cold-pressor tests.
