Department of Cognitive Science

Behavioural Cognition Facilities

Eyelink ScannerThe department operates a number of behavioural cognition facilities that are commonly used to run paradigms such as Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP), Masked Priming, Repetiton Blindness and Attentional Blink. In addition to our laboratories there are also three laptop computers that can be borrowed for research purposes in the field.


Researchers are able to run multiple subjects from the same study on different computers without worrying about any differences between machines potentially confounding their results.

The computers in these labs have identical hardware configurations and also have an identical operating system and software configuration that cannot be altered (deliberately or accidentally). The operating system and software setup is archived and is able to be restored at any time, quickly and without the need to manually backup researchers scripts, stimuli and resulting data files.

New users should become familiar with the details and procedures for the PCs in each lab. Failure to do so will most likely result in data loss when testing begins.
