LPAL Facilities

The L-PAL lab is located in the Applied Linguistics/ESL Department and is housed in two spaces.

The first space contains four soundproof testing rooms that are used to conduct experiments with human subjects. Three of the rooms contain desktop computers designed to run a wide variety of linguistic experiments (e.g., reaction time measurements, listening comprehension tasks, lexical decision tasks). The fourth room houses a computer equipped with an eye tracking device capable of capturing fine-grained eye movements, useful for answer questions related to the processing of written text.

Our other eye-tracker set up in the data collection area.
