For Researchers

The Center for Behavioral Research maintains a behavior lab and database of available participants for research conducted by NYU Stern faculty or PhD students.

The behavior lab contains 25 individual computer stations for use in individual studies and four meeting rooms for group studies. The individual computer stations are equipped with desktop computers and webcams. The computers are connected to the lab’s server, have Internet access, and have v2006 MediaLab and DirectRT software installed. Files may be copied to or from computer stations via the behavior lab server. The four meeting rooms can each hold 4-5 people and are equipped with LCD televisions that can be connected to a computer for computer-based group tasks. Laptops and video cameras are available by reservation for use in the meeting rooms.

In addition to the behavior lab, the Center maintains a database of individuals (primarily NYU students and staff) interested in participating in research projects, either online or in-lab studies.

To use the Center’s facilities and/or participants, follow five simple steps:
  1. Become affiliated with the Center and get access to the behavior lab
  2. Obtain approval for your study from UCAIHS, NYU’s IRB
  3. If your study requires that participants come to the lab, reserve the behavior lab
  4. Enter your study in Sona Systems
  5. Recruit participants
