The Mount Union Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Human Development is located on the second floor of Tolerton and Hood Hall. The space was designed with student learning in mind.
The Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Human Development utilizes multiple laboratory rooms for students doing independent research and their senior research experiences including:
- A psychophysiological lab used for testing heart rate, electrodermal activity and EEG
- A neuropsychology testing lab
- A general-purpose research room for computer-based questionnaire and task studies
- A canine cognition laboratory
- A cognition and humor laboratory
Students also benefit from a computer lab space and a social, developmental and counseling laboratory suite that consists of a social lab, observation room and counseling room. The social, developmental and counseling laboratory suite provides dedicated departmental space wired for audio and video recording for students and faculty to simulate real counseling offices and group spaces relevant to the study of human behavior as part of coursework and/or research. The one-way glass center observation room allows for peer observation of role-plays for feedback on skills development.
In addition, there is generous social space with tables and soft seating for students to use to study, socialize and meet with faculty. This space is equipped for both wired and wireless access to the campus network.
