School of Psychology virtual tours

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:

Play icon This button will play a brief snippet of the areas you can navigate through on your tour.

Person Icon Use this button to switch to a first-person view of the tour.

Floor Plan Icon This button will show you a birds-eye view of a floor you're touring, use it to fast travel to specific areas.

Floor Icon 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 to interact with the tour:

Blue Mattertag The blue icon will show you information about the area of the tour you're currently in.

Red Mattertag The red icon when selected will show you a video.

Purple Mattertag The purple icon will allow you to navigate between the different buildings that make up the tour.

Green Mattertag 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)
