new networked lab opens 1/18
hey friends, start thinkin' up some good experiments! a new networked computer lab opens for business in january.
we'll have 44 workstations, e-prime software, and some fine technical support staff. in such shared lab facilities, early users get great access and rarely have to pay for it. i expect that faculty and grads from econ and psych will lead the way, but i can think of some way cool soc and crim applications as well.
Please join us for the grand opening of the College of Liberal Arts Social and Behavioral Sciences Laboratory (SBSL)
Thursday, January 18, 2006
4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
170 Anderson Hall (West Bank)
- Opening remarks by Dean Steven Rosenstone
- Tour of the new experimental research laboratory
- Presentation of programming and survey services
- Hands-on demonstration of equipment and software (3:00 – 4:00 p.m.)
The Social and Behavioral Sciences Laboratory consists of a networked, human subject research laboratory with 44 workstations in 170 Anderson Hall and an eye-tracking device that will be installed in 25 Blegen Hall by March 2007. Workstation carrels can be configured in rows or clusters depending on particular research needs. Each computer is pre-loaded with E-Prime run-time and the lab can install a variety of other software on request. Most workstations are equipped with LCD displays, headphones, and Psychology Software Tools Serial Response Boxes.
The staffing of the lab includes a research consultant (Kemal Badur), a lab manager (John Easton), and technical support (Pernu Menheer). The CLA Office for Information Technology has a programming team under Karen Bencke, which can help with selected research-support programming.
It is possible immediately to schedule blocks of time for conducting computer-based human subject research in this lab, given IRB approval of your application to them, and with suitable preparation with the lab personnel to support your experimental design. Please contact Kemal Badur, 612-625-0567 firstname.lastname@example.org, or John Easton, 612-625-1079 email@example.com for more information.
