In addition, the School hosts several research centres which also contain shared facilities and equipment.

Facilities include:

Infant and Child Laboratory - School of Psychology

Description
Welcome to the University of Birmingham Infant and Child Laboratory. We are based in the School of Psychology on the University campus, and in our research we study a variety of questions about infants' and young children's developing minds and brains.

PRISM Predictive Sensory Motor Lab - School of Psychology

Description
The PRISM Predictive Sensory Motor Lab is part of the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre. We are working on questions of sensory-motor control, motor learning, coordination and motor cognition. The main thrust of our work is to look at the role of predictive processes in the human motor system.

Sensory Motor Neuroscience (SyMoN) - School of Psychology

Description
SyMoN comprises a number of specialised labs including Action dynamics, Active Touch, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Posture and balance and a Technical Project Area.

The Selective Attention and Awareness Laboratory (SAAL)

Applying theoretical analysis, psychophysical experiments and computational modelling to the understanding of human vision. The Vision Laboratory focuses on many aspects of human vision including motion perception, spatial vision, and stereopsis.

Visual Experience Lab - School of Psychology

Description
Homepage for the Visual Experience Lab. At the Visual Experience Laboratory, we investigate how visual information is used immediately (sensory or perceptual functions), and how it is stored (memory functions) and assimilated with other knowledge (learning) after the sensory information is no longer available.
