The Department of Psychology is supported by excellent space and technology resources to support its teaching, research, and service missions. The department has high quality physical facilities that are a major asset to faculty productivity and to both undergraduate and graduate students. Most instruction is carried out in the Psychology-Computer Science Building on the DeKalb campus in six dedicated classrooms, three seminar rooms, three undergraduate course labs, and faculty research laboratories although some courses at the undergraduate level are offered at the Hoffman Estates, Naperville, and Rockford campuses. The department also administers the Psychological Services Center, which provides an excellent setting in which clinical services are provided to both university and community clients, and clinical supervision is provided to students by department faculty.
The department houses a wide array of technology used in conducting psychological research including radio telemetry recording hardware and software, digital video recording and behavioral coding software, an infant simulator, operant conditioning chambers, high performance liquid chromatography and electrochemical detectors, biological assay and histology laboratory, surgical laboratory, laser scanning microscope, epifluorescence microscope, and extensive psychophysiological monitoring equipment and data analysis software (e.g., facial electromyography, heart and respiration rate, skin temperature and conductance, actigraph monitors).
