A laboratory for developmental psychologists


Journal Article

The main features of the laboratories for developmental psychologists at Chapel Hill are described. These features include: A flexible spatial arrangement of experimental rooms; a grouping of the rooms into three independent units for the conduct of research with immature organisms of different ages and species; central apparatus that controls the stimulating and recording equipment; viewing areas that permit the observation of behavior in several rooms; auditory intercommunication between all pairs of rooms; and self-contained automated devices to aid the experimenter or the observer in his tasks. These characteristics make the laboratories useful for a variety of studies. © 1971.
