The Perception Lab
The lab is located on the 3rd floor of the Clement building in the 345/347 suite. There is one main room, 5 satellite rooms for setting up equipment and running experiments, and a small shop.
The main room contains a large variety of equipment, instruments, and assessments for studying visual perception and visual-spatial skills. These include:
- Lab-dedicated computers.
- Two large optical benches.
- Luminance meter and sound level meter.
- National Instruments D/A hardware and software.
- Optics and filters large and small.
- Low and high contrast visual acuity charts, color vision tests.
- Stereo microscope and attached video camera (spiders!)
- Neuropsychological assessments
These facilities were outfitted in part thanks to generous grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
