The Department of Educational Psychology will unveil its Neurobiological Lab for Learning and Development on Friday, Dec. 11. The lab is home to state-of-the-art equipment capable of measuring different pieces of neurologic data that influence development, learning and physiology.

Under the direction of Assistant Professor Steven Woltering, the presentation will give viewers an in-depth look into the lab’s biometric work. “We want to explain our mission and vision for what the lab can mean for the faculty at Texas A&M, students, and the community at large,” Woltering said.

The opening talk begins at 2 p.m. in room 215 of the Harrington Education Center, on the northwest side of the Evans Library. Demonstrations will begin at 2:30 p.m. in Harrington 715A.

In early 2015, the lab received $25,000 from the Division of Research’s PESCA Grant Program, which makes annual awards to a wide-range of projects among Texas A&M faculty-researchers in the social sciences, policy studies, arts, humanities and related fields.

“The neurobiological lab represents the type of project that PESCA was created to support: one that has significant potential to attract future funding from federal agencies, national endowments, institutes, foundations and councils,” said Vice President for Research Glen A. Laine.
