The Experimental Psychology laboratory has excellent laboratory conditions (five reaction-time cabins, one group testing room, one individual testing room, an EEG, two olfactometers, a motion-tracking device, peripheral physiological measurement instruments, a gyroscope, further motion/movement equipment, etc.). The research foci of the laboratory include olfaction, attention, memory, action, spatial compatibility and movement/motion. The lab is composed of an international team and is a part of the “Joint International Laboratory on Cognition and Behavior”, a joint laboratory project with colleagues from China, South Korea, and the USA. Furthermore, the lab maintains collaborations with other regional, national, and international research partners.
