Thanks to National Science Foundation
and Sherman Fairchild Foundation grants, the Psychology Department has equipment for a variety of
teaching and research purposes. The department contains teaching
laboratories for cognitive psychology, statistical analysis
and neuroscience, and each faculty member has facilities that are used for faculty-student collaborative research.
The facilities include a studio for
videotaping small group interactions and laboratory
equipment for neuroanatomical research, intracellular and
extracellular single neuron recording, voltage and patch
clamping, eye movement tracking, evoked potential recording
and tactile psychophysics.
For Neuroscience students, the
Biology Department provides environmental chambers, scanning
and transmission electron microscopes, and facilities for
cellular and molecular biology. Both departments share a
vivarium that contains species ranging from alligators to rats.
