In January 2009, the TSU Psychology Department was granted a ~$150,000 award from the National Science Foundation Historically Black College/University-Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) to establish the TSU Experimental Psychology Teaching & Research Laboratory with the goal of promoting experimental psychology as a career path for TSU students. Currently, African Americans are underrepresented in the field of psychology, but particularly so in the experimental subfields.
The Laboratory will house: a 64-channel EEG system (Electrical Geodesic Inc.); psycho-physiological equipment for recording blood pressure, skin conductance; a battery of psychological tests; and 15 computers.
