Behavior labs

The institute has six behavioral labs, all with sound-proof booths. Each booth contains a button box, a monitor, a microphone, a pair of headphones and a keyboard.

One unique feature is the availability of multiple sound-proof booth in one room. The different booth can be linked to allow interactive experiments or the high-fidelity recording of conversations.

By using small DJ mixers, the set-up is flexible and allows the researcher to record stimuli and responses on different devices (on DAT tape or directly on the computer). In conjunction with PRESENTATIONS Sound recording feature, this allows offline analysis of vocal responses, using semi-automatic PRAAT scripts, replacing the notoriously unreliable voicekey.

About MPI

This is the MPI

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is an institute of the German Max Planck Society. Our mission is to undertake basic research into the psychological,social and biological foundations of language. The goal is to understand how our minds and brains process language, how language interacts with other aspects of mind, and how we can learn languages of quite different types.

The institute is situated on the campus of the Radboud University. We participate in the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and have particularly close ties to that institute's Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging. We also participate in the Centre for Language Studies. A joint graduate school, the IMPRS in Language Sciences, links the Donders Institute, the CLS and the MPI.
