Researchers at the Faculty use various types of equipment. Equipment can be used to measure physiological responses during an experiment or to provide stimuli or create a virtual experiment. Read more about the equipment SOLO Research and Lab Support supports.
The Institute of Education and Child Studies, the Institute of Psychology and SOLO Research and Lab Support already own a lot of equipment. You can check with your lab coordinator if your needed equipment is available in your research group. If not, your lab coordinator can contact SOLO Research and Lab Support about the possibilities to borrow from SOLO or other departments.
When equipment is not available, or you need it for a longer period new equipment has to be ordered via SOLO Research and Lab Support. When you have funding and approval of the budget holder your lab coordinator can place the order at SOLO. SOLO always checks the safety certificates before ordering.
Before you start working with of the equipment you must ensure that you know how to operate the device and how to connect the participant to it. You must also know what the signal should look like, so you can check the signal and do some adjustments before starting high quality data collection. The head researcher and lab coordinator are responsible for ensuring that researchers are sufficiently competent to carry out the research.
