Designing the Psychology Laboratories at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Fawl, Clifford L.
This paper describes the psychology laboratory at Nebraska Wesleyan University and the efforts of the small department which participated in the design and development process. The lab consists of 26 rooms, mostly small cubicles, and covers approximately 3,800 square feet. Each area of the lab is described in terms of its design and function. Major areas of the lab are: (1) general purpose cubicles; (2) independent research cubicles; (3) the perception lab; (4) the animal surgery and histology lab; (5) the sleep lab; (6) the social psychology lab; (7) the operant conditioning lab; (8) the pigeon vivarium; and (9) miscellaneous support rooms (the animal colony, the audio-visual room, the workshop, and the main classroom). Problems with the lab are pointed out including lack of storage space and noise. Suggestions to others who may be contemplating the building of a psychology laboratory are also discussed. A map of the facility is included. (AG)
