Clark’s Psychology Department has more than 35,000 square feet dedicated to learning, research, and laboratory work. Graduate students have new, semi-private offices and access to dedicated lab clusters, which include a smart playroom for automated behavioral tracking, eye tracking and 3D manual reach tracking.
In addition, the recently updated Developmental Lab offers several pairs of rooms in which individuals or groups can be observed and filmed through one-way mirrors. These resources, among the many more available within the Robert Hutchings Goddard Library, demonstrate our commitment to research.
The lab spaces are organized in clusters that characteristically contain three or four (or more) data collection rooms, observation rooms, and data coding and analysis spaces. These lab clusters include:
- The Bliss Child and Family Center, containing several pairs of rooms in which individuals or groups can be observed and filmed through one-way mirrors
- The Child Study Lab, with similar sets of paired rooms
- The Social Psychology Lab
- Additional rooms for data collection needs
In addition, the Psychological Services area includes two therapy suites that permit the observation and videotaping of clinical sessions.
