An outstanding feature of scientific endeavour in the School is the use of a wide range of methodological techniques to address novel research questions. To facilitate this, researchers have access to state-of-the-art facilities that provide unique opportunities for complementary studies across methodologies and for cross-group collaborations.
Current facilities include:
- Over 1100 square meters of specialised designed laboratory space for behavioural, psychophysical and eye-tracking experiments (see Cognitive Science)
- Behavioural neuroscience laboratories for studies at the molecular, cellular, neural and genetic level (see Behavioural Neuroscience)
- Specially designed laboratories for testing children and patients with neurological and psychiatric disorders (see Developmental and Health Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience)
- State of the art imaging facilities, including a 3T GE scanner, MEG, ERP, TMS and eye-tracking, all housed within the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre adjacent to the main Psychology building (see Imaging Science)
- Easy access to participants for experiments (e.g., undergraduates and community-based participants) via in-house volunteer panels
