Our lab is located at the building of CEVRO Institute college at Jungmannova 28/17, Prague 1.
There are seventeen terminals separated by adjustable partitions and equipped with the latest Windows operating system, Z-tree and O-tree experimental software, and with other standard office software.
There is also a separate room where we can pay participants or carry out a qualitative part of the research.
What can we research in the lab?
Our experimental lab allows us to look into a wide range of social phenomena from binary consumer choices to complex market mechanisms.
The power of experimental approach lies primarily in simplifying reality to simulated gameplay. Through the provision of specific motivations and interaction controls, we can concentrate on the problem we’re looking at without omission of the other personality traits and decision-making patterns of the participants.
The lab also allows highly diversified research on social and cognitive psychology, which leads to the more realistic assumptions of economic theory about people’s decision-making processes. For example, it’s possible to look into:
- Situational and environmental factors affecting human behavior (from susceptibility to corruption to greater work performance).
- Non-rational and intuitive processes in gathering, processing, and using information about political, health, social or moral decisions.
- Cognitive processes that promote or, on the contrary, prevent dialogue and mutual understanding among persons with distinctive political or religious attitudes.
- Perception of institutions and market mechanisms in relation to non-financial incentives such as values, identity or identification with the group, leading to market rejection in taboo areas.
Possibilities of cooperation
Within the framework of external cooperation, we’re able to carry out turnkey research (including programming and experimentation) or provide our lab for research that you can do yourself.
