BRL Standard


Researchers can access a computer lab, meeting rooms, observation room and reception room.

Due to the current pandemic and government restrictions, the physical lab is not open and we are using online facilities only.  

Computer lab

BRL computer cubicle

The main BL computer lab contains 20 networked work stations, separated by individual cubicles in which participants can work without being disturbed. There is also a desk where researchers can monitor their experiments and answer any questions that participants may have surrounding the study.

Meeting rooms

BRL meeting room

Adjacent to the main room are four smaller discussion rooms, each of which can accommodate up to eight research participants seated around a table with a small, unobtrusive rotating video camera in the centre. These rooms are designed for research involving group interactions; for example, group decision making, team creativity, and team dynamics. Meeting Rooms 1 to 3 have round tables suitable for group discussion, and the video camera can capture one person at a time. Meeting Room 4 has a rectangle table which may be more suitable in leadership roles. This arrangement can also capture two people at once on the video camera.

Observation room

BRL software

Our observation room contains a state-of-the-art video monitoring system which can view and record activities in the meeting rooms. The researcher can sit in the observation room and control the rotating camera in each room while listening and watching participants on a split-screen monitor showing all four rooms at the same time. Recordings can then be transferred on to an external hard drive or DVD. The room also contains a PC for use by researchers when monitoring studies.

Reception room

reception room

At the entrance to the lab is a reception room where the Lab Manger is based. The Lab Manager is available for assistance when a study is running, as well as providing information should you have any questions about the BL. This room also functions as an area for participants to sign in and rearchers can greet them as they arrive, and a waiting room until the study begins.
