Lab Resources

The following are some of the resources associated with the Anderson Behavioral Lab.

Lab Suite

The Anderson Behavioral Laboratory (MCM 4010) is an approximately 1,500 square foot facility that consists of 5 rooms: lobby, two data collection rooms with computer workstations, a "boardroom" for focus group or social interaction research, and an experimenter control room.


As of Summer 2018, plans for a variety of forms of new hardware are ongoing. Current hardware includes several computer workstations with laptops, headphones, and wireless mice. The boardroom and two data collection rooms include cameras with audio capture capabilities and large screen displays. The control room is equipped with computers and large screen desktop displays to allow for video monitoring of lab activity and control of various aspects of lab suite technology.


DirectRT: Software from Empirisoft that facilitates reaction time experiments.

E-Prime: Software from Psychology Software Tools that can facilitate a wide variety of study types.

Internet-Based Data Collection: The lab holds a Qualtrics license and can facilitate data collection using this and other online data collection tools.

MediaLab: Software from Empirisoft that facilitates a wide range of possible study types: from simple text-only surveys to more complex experimental designs involving video, audio, and pictures.

SONA-Systems: The Lab holds a license for this software that manages research participation pools administration.

Z-Tree: Experiment delivery software for Behavioral Economics research.

Participant Pools

Department of Organizational Studies (DOS): DOS operates a student research participation program associated with its core Organizational Behavior courses, MGMT 306 & MGMT 506. Sona Systems participant management software (web-based) is used to facilitate recruiting, participant sign up, and credit granting.  

Study Facilitation

The lab employs up to 5 graduate assistants/semester who have received humans subjects research training and are available to serve in a study facilitation capacity (i.e., as "experimenters").
