Centre for Psychological Innovation
On April 5th, the Centre for Psychological Innovation officially opened its doors. This cutting edge space features many innovative technologies, including 360º treadmills, one-way glass observation rooms and a virtual reality lab. Students are able to observe familial dynamics in the child and family lab, collect audio and video data and get even more work experience with faculty in their studies. Although only recently opened, the lab is already generating attention, and was featured on Global News Calgary.
