Equipment and Facilities

Resources needed for thorough training in modern psychological science are available in the departmental laboratories in Peretsman Scully Hall and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI). Laboratory units are organized around the research programs of the faculty, ranging from animal motivation and conditioning processes to decision-making in human social groups, from neurophysiological mechanisms controlling basic drives to attributional processes in judging other individuals, from the sensory and perceptual roots of human cognition to concept formation and problem-solving behavior in the child and adult, from the mathematical and computer techniques employed in research to the mechanisms of attitude formation and change.

The department also benefits from shared resources throughout the University. The PNI fosters research on the neural underpinnings of psychological function with state-of-the-art facilities including

  • Two research-dedicated high-field fMRI scanners
  • High-density scalp EEG systems
  • High-performance computing facilities for data analysis and computational modeling

 The following University affiliates each offer unique facilities and research opportunities:

  • Department of African American Studies (AAS)
  • Center for Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML)
  • Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE)
  • University Center for Human Values (UCHV)
  • Princeton School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA)
