PSYCHOLOGY INNOVATION LAB
What is the Psychology Innovation Lab?
The Psychology Innovation Lab at MacMurray College gives students the opportunity to engage in hands-on cognitive and behavioral research using the latest technologies in the field. Funded by the MacMurray Higher Points of Excellence Campaign, the Board of Trustees and President Hester are demonstrating support for upgrades and academic excellence in the Psychology Program at MacMurray. The Lab will prepare students for graduate level work, and assist them in developing research papers for presentation at conferences. A new course specific to the Lab is being developed by Professor Matt Wiediger, PhD, and will be implemented in the Spring 2013 semester.
Where is the Psych Innovation Lab located?
The Psych Innovation Lab is located in MacMurray Hall Room 15A. MacMurray Hall is on the northwest corner of the campus. Enter through the main doors, take the stairwell on the right to the second floor, go right and then left into the Psychology suite (Room 15). The Lab is the first door on your left.
The New Lab Facility
The new Lab is located in the Psychology Suite, which consists of a main waiting area filled with historic instruments from past psychology experiments at MacMurray, a conference room for seminars, and a TV equipped with DVD/VCR capabilities. The Lab has two new computers equipped with data collection programs (E-Prime) and data analysis programs. Both whiteboards and blackboards are included for faculty instruction in the Lab.
If you are a MacMurray Psychology or Social Work student collecting data for a research project, remember that you have these resources available to you. Contact Pam Brasel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With large tables, chairs, and white boards, the lab is
an inviting place for faculty and students to engage in
research and collaboration.
