The Human Auditory Physiology Lab

The Human Auditory Physiology Laboratory (HAPLab) is housed in South Stadium Hall. Two sound-treated rooms are located in the HAPLab. Equipment is available to synthesize and generate sound digitally. Responses to sounds can be measured behaviorally, acoustically, or physiologically using commercial and custom-made data acquisition systems. The HAPLab contains IBM-compatible computers plus related hardware. Software is available to carry out all current forms of data analysis. Two computer workstations are available for students conducting research projects in the HAPLab. The HAPLab is connected to the University's mainframe computers via an Ethernet network.
