Brain and Behavioral Science Lab: The Brain and Behavioral Science Laboratory

** New requests for use of the BBSL are on hold until further notice, pending construction ** 

Welcome to the Brain and Behavioral Science Lab in the Moody College of Communication.  This research facility‐located in a newly remodeled space in the Communication B Building (CMB)‐houses a suite of versatile, state-of-the-art experimental rooms and lab spaces.

The capabilities of the Brain and Behavioral Science Lab are extensive, and the space was designed to facilitate the research of faculty and students from a variety of areas within the communication discipline. The lab is comprised of:

  • A conference room/focus group room
  • Three experimental lab rooms
  • A dedicated space for conducting physiological and eye tracking studies. Researchers interested in using this room will need to provide their own equipment.

We invite you to explore the resources and capabilities of each area of the Brain and Behavioral Science Lab by visiting the individual links for different suites and rooms located below.
