Dr. Heidi Wayment, Professor of Psychological Sciences and SBS Associate Dean, as PI on a NAU REAP award along with seven colleagues, is receiving $98,000 to support the purchase of iMotions software and hardware (across SBS and CAL) to incorporate biometric data into research projects in several research labs. The innovative platform features eye tracking, emotion recognition, EEG, heart rate, and other physiological measures will enhance experimental investigation and provide undergraduate and graduate students with valuable research opportunities. The lab leaders are located in Psychological Sciences (Collier, Eiler, Goodman, Huffman, Tidikis, Wayment), School of Communication (Tsai) and Department of English (Dronjic). The funding will allow two mobile units for data collection in the SAS building (3rd floor) and School of Communication for faculty and students’ shared use. Important additional contributions for the seven lab setups also donated by SBS, CAL, and the Departments of Psychological Sciences, School of Communication, and the Department of English.
