The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) has excellent in-house facilities that are used to test participants under standardised conditions. Researchers can use our labs and various resources for optimum data collection.
- Virtual Reality Lab
In this lab, realistic, three-dimensional computer-generated environments can be created in which researchers can follow participants. Psychological research into anxiety disorders is carried out here, for example.
- Bar Lab
Observational research into social behaviour in a natural setting can be done here, by means of discreet cameras and recording equipment.
- Sports Lab
This lab is used for behavioural and psycho-physiological measurements during exertion. There is new, state-of-the-art apparatus available, such as a professional treadmill, widescreen television, digital video cameras, sleep managers and heart rate monitors.
- Robotics Lab
With a wide range from Lego robots to humanoid robots, this lab makes it possible to research the interaction between human and robot.
- Music Cognition Lab
Everything you need to gain insight into the cognitive mechanisms that form the basis of musicality.
- Observation Lab
People's behaviour can be observed in this lab, by means of a one-way screen and multiple cameras.
- Computer Lab
In this lab, 22 identical spaces are available for carrying out computerised experiments.
- Mobile Labs
We also have mobile labs available, for carrying out experiments outside the university. They allow you to do tests and observations with, for example, EEG and computers, on location at schools, for example.
- Lab for physiological measurements
Here, researchers can measure neurocognitive biomechanical mechanisms that influence behaviour, using EEG apparatus, for example.
