Research Facilities

The Research Unit manages two research facilities: the Usability Laboratory and the Cognitive Neuroscience (CNS) Laboratory. Both are located at the Campus Belval of the University of Luxembourg.

Usability Laboratory

Within the Institute of Cognitive Science and Assessment, the scientific lead and management of the usability laboratory plays a key role. This includes tasks like: developing research methodologies tailored to specific projects' needs and supporting researches from other domains wishing to use this laboratory as a tool for their projects.

We also support UL-internal activities as well as projects run with external partners. We also regularly expand the lab in order to maintain state-of-the-art facilities. Moreover, we promote the added value of human-centred methodologies by organizing conferences and attending colloquia to share our research.

Research in the CNS Laboratory aims at better understanding cognitive processes such as number processing, working memory and attention.

We investigate the behaviour and neural mechanisms underlying these processes from childhood over adolescence to adulthood and old age. We use computer-based behavioral tests as well as Electro-Encephalography (EEG) and Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) to pursue our research goals. More punctually we also run functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies in collaboration with the Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre (

Our laboratory facilities are located on the Campus Belval.
