The McCrystal Laboratory for Behavioral Research
Students learn the significance of basic psychological research in the McCrystal Laboratory, a teaching facility that houses up to 60 animals (rats) and is equipped with a foraging arena, a radial arm maze, a running wheel and operant chambers. Students assist faculty with research and conduct their own independent studies on learning, memory, decision- making and choice behavior.
The Education and Neuroscience Research Center
In conjunction with Capital's education department, the behavioral sciences faculty teach students to perform psychophysiological measurements important to neuroscience research. For instance, students receive technical training in electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiology (ECG), and electromyography (EMG).
