MRU formally opens psychological innovation facility

April 7, 2017

Mount Royal University has formally opened its new $1.4M Centre for Psychological Innovation. The centre features a variety of new facilities, including a virtual reality lab, two eye-tracker suites, and several one-way glass observation rooms. “Technology allows us to measure aspects of daily life in an academically rigorous setting,” said Anthony Chaston, Assistant Chair of the Department of Psychology. “Our research doesn’t stay in the lab. It leads to outcomes that make life better for people. It also inspires others to build on our work.” The centre is described as a distinctly collaborative space that allows individuals from a variety of academic career stages to share their insights. MRU
