The IBRC lab is a state-of-the-science experimental research lab that holds computing facilities for group and individual testing, including two labs with networked desktop systems and removable desk partitions (allowing testing to be conducted on subjects working in groups or in isolation); 12 acoustically sealed cubicles with networked desktop systems that provide millisecond keyboards for improved reaction time measurement; four audio-video recording rooms with high-quality cameras and microphones (both visible and clandestine); two psychophysiology recording rooms equipped for the measurement of galvanic skin response, heart rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, EMG, ECG, respiration and finger pulse amplitude; a dedicated teaching/seminar room with data projector and multiple format AV capability, and five 15-inch Gateway M320X laptops.
SSRI also offers graduate students conducting experimental research a modest ($600) participant payment grant and provides administrative support to researchers who need to manage funds used for subject payments.
Space at IBRC can be reserved online through 25Live, the online scheduling site utilized by Duke. To view room availability and to request room reservations, search for “SSRI–East (IBRC).” In order to use IBRC lab space, you must first be registered as an IBRC researcher; to register, please send an email to: Tia Tyndal.
