Numerous research facilities are available to faculty and students including laboratories in Cognition development, psychometrics, Physiological research; and observational facilities for social and developmental psychological research. Animal spaces and facilities are also conveniently available.

Physiological Research Facilities
The Physiological lab is used to support instruction, demonstration, faculty research, and practice in the understanding of animal and human physiology. The room is used to support laboratory/instructional activities such as the dissection of sheep brains, cardiovascular labs to assess the measurement of blood pressure, resting heart rate; nutrition labs, stress labs to assess physiological reactions to stress, weight management labs, physical activity labs, and substance abuse labs.

Cognitive Research Facilities
