Lab Spaces

Research in the department is organized around several labs and other research groups, making use of several shared lab spaces. Physically, these comprise approximately 1,200 square feet of space for testing, meeting and analysis. These facilities are located on the second floor of Stevenson College, adjacent to the Linguistics faculty and administrative offices.

  • Perception and Recording Lab (221 Stevenson)
    This facility is equipped with two sound attenuating booths (40-70 dB reduction) for recording and perception experiments. For studying articulatory phenomena, we have a Terason T3000 portable high-speed ultrasound and Casio Exilim Pro high speed camera.
  • Eye Tracking Lab (232 Stevenson)
    This facility houses an Eyelink 1000 eye-tracker. This desktop-mounted equipment allows head-stabilized tracking at 1,000 Hz or head-free tracking at 500 Hz. For other types of behavioral experiments, there are four testing stations equipped with millisecond-accurate keyboards.
  • Meeting and Analysis Room (217 Stevenson)
    This lab is used for meetings by the Department's many research groups and for analysis. The space can be reserved using this online form.

The current Lab Coordinators for these spaces are Matt Wagers and Grant McGuire.
