Human performance lab
As well as providing equipment which allow us to perform laboratory assessments, this lab is also a high quality, experience-based learning environment for physiology related modules.
Our research looks at human attention, in terms of how it’s allocated, influenced, and disrupted. We do this through examination of human eye movements, using eye-tracking equipment with high spatial and temporal resolution.
Our research includes the identification stimuli that changes autonomic functioning and the use of psychophysiological measures to identify the roles of temperament, beliefs and skill in self-regulation.
