This handbook includes policies, information, and procedures for working in the Cognition and Learning Laboratory. For undergraduate students, the PSY 390/391/498 syllabus contains additional information about working in the lab for course credit.

  1. Introduction. This section talks about the purpose of the lab, people and their roles in the lab, and an overview of the research process.
  2. Lab Policies. This section contains policies and important information about working in the lab on a day to day basis.
  3. Running Lab Experiments. This section provides details about all the steps involved in running experiments in the lab.
  4. Creating and Running Online Experiments. This section contains introductory information about web programming and about conducting online experiments.
  5. Resources. This section contains additional information and resources relevant to working in the Cognition and Learning Lab.
