Introduction to Our Laboratory


The Group Experiment Lab | The Worldwide Network Experiment Lab
The Experiment Lab for Perception/Sensation Systems


Our laboratory consists of three modules: (1) The worldwide network experiment lab with sixteen cubicles for worldwide collaborative experiments, (2) The group experiment lab which allows us to examine and observe how face-to-face interactions (micro processes) generate norms (macro processes), and (3) The experiment lab for perception/sensation systems which allows us to examine the relationships between how individuals behave in interaction settings and their perceptual and emotional reactions, such as the allocation of attention and their affective responses. In total, up to thirty-six participants can attend experiments at the same time. Their interactions are monitored by the network. In collaboration with researchers and laboratories at Cornell University, Stanford University, and Carlton University, we have conducted experiments both Japanese students and American students participate in an experiment simultaneously.



The Group Experiment Lab
 


There are fifteen desks furnished with partitions. The room is used for group experiments in which participants are aware of the existence of others. By changing the height of the partition at each desk, we can manipulate the degree of privacy. Each desk is furnished with a personal computer. The network is connected to the worldwide network experiment room such that a total of thirty-six people can participate simultaneously in the experiment.
