Psychology Department - Labs & Services

Can be Lab (Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience and Behavior Laboratory)

The Psychology Department focuses its research activities on “Applied Cognitive and Affective Sciences“. In order to contribute to this blooming field of research we build up lab facilities to accommodate all possible approaches to study cognition and affect in an applied manner.
In particular, we created a lab environment that is called the CanBeLab (Cognitive&Affective Neuroscience and Behavior Laboratory). We CAN take various behavioral measures including video analysis of facial expressions. We also record brain activities (EEG), we conduct startle reflex modulation studies (to quantify emotion) and we can investigate facial expressions via facial electromyography (fEMG). In addition, we CAN also take traditional measures such as heart rate, skin conductance, respiration rate, body motion and temperature. All this in combination with a battery of available psychological tests enables us to do applied cognitive and affective research.

Student Counseling Service

The Student Counseling Service is free and available to all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as staff and faculty members. Supervised by our experienced faculty, graduate psychology students are here to support you to talk one-to-one about the issues you are facing. The Student Counseling Center also has an active program of seminars, workshops, groups and lectures about many issues including coping with the stress of exams, and managing your time.


Psychological Testing Service

The Testing Service can help when you need clarification of issues concerning memory, intelligence or dyslexia. It also helps you in case you need an assessment of your academic or professional interest and when you are experiencing emotional, learning or general academic difficulties due to anxiety, motivation or concentration problems.
