How to use the virtual tour
Our virtual tour works in a similar way to Google Maps, however there are some useful icons to help you with your journey through our Faculty:
Use this button to switch to a first-person view of the tour.
This button will show you a birds-eye view of a floor you're touring, use it to fast travel to specific areas.
This button will allow you move between different floors on your tour.
There are a number of coloured icons you can select that will allow you interact with the tour:
The blue icon will show you information about the area of the tour you're currently in.
The red icon when selected will show you a video.
The purple icon will allow you to navigate between the different buildings that make up the tour.
The green icon will allow to fast-travel to different parts of the tour.
In the £26 million Tom Reilly Building, you’ll find psychology students recording brain activity with EEG and fNIRS and using virtual reality systems and a driving simulator to test out simulated activities.
Plus psychology students and research staff take advantage of:
Psychophysiology Lab: eye tracking and facial recognition software, game consoles, fNIR system (which monitors changes in cortical oxygenation and deoxygenation in the brain), GSR transducer sets, electro-oculogram amplifier (to record eye movements), evoked response equipment
- Sensory and Affective Neuroscience Lab: Medoc Pathway Thermal Sensory Analyser used in pain studies, a Robotic Tactile Stimulator for research into affective touch, an olfactometer for smell research, microneurography capabilities used to record and microstimulate single sensory nerves innervating the skin
- Driving simulator: driver console with steering wheel, brake, clutch and accelerator pedals, and a tester console with programming monitor
- Appetite Research Lab: fully equipped food preparation kitchen and testing area
- Human Performance Testing Lab: a dedicated general purpose laboratory for physiological measurements with associated software (EMG, EEG, ECG, GSR, blood flow, air flow, breathing rate, Chart 4.0 Analysis)
