The Murrow Communication
Emotion and Cognition Lab
The mission of the Communication Cognition and Emotion (CEC) Lab is to examine how biologically, psychologically and sociologically relevant factors about humans and media interact to affect how individuals cognitively and emotional process and respond to different types of information in various contexts.
The CEC Lab is equipped with a state-of-the-technology wireless psychophysiological data collection unit that allows individuals to engage in media consumption and communication behaviors and processes in multiple environments. The Lab also is equipped with software and devices designed for the collection of a host of metrics in cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral research paradigms.
