About the Observation laboratory

We use this laboratory to carry out observation techniques and record social interactions.

The lab has a 1 way mirror between adjoining rooms and a recording suite. We view study participants and record their interactions.

An example of a study could be a shared task given to strangers. With the lab we can investigate the relationship between personality traits and rapport building.
