For Researchers

Goizueta Behavioral Research is a resource for faculty and graduate students looking to complete various forms of research. The space can be adjusted to meet the needs of the study, transforming from a room with a fifth-floor view of Patterson Green and Jenkins Courtyard, into the typical, controlled laboratory environment with blackout shades. The lab has 20 mobile stations, each of which includes a desk with privacy screens, an all-in-one desktop computer with video capture capability, headsets, and a wireless mouse and keyboard. Each station has removable privacy screens, and the stations can be combined and dissembled in several ways to accommodate your research needs.

The lab also includes:

  • Access to a database for subject recruiting/tracking
  • Assistance staff and a programmer
  • Lab research assistance
