UNLV Interaction & Media Science Lab

Technology and Cognition

The UNLV Interaction & Media Sciences Lab is an interdisciplinary lab that specializes in state-of-the-art-research into human-computer-interaction, video games, game-based models, virtual reality, and simulations. We focus our research on understanding technology from the human perspective, specifically in the context of human learning, behavior, and socio-emotional competencies.

Located in the Carlson Education Building, room CEB 313/330, the lab actually consists of three separate workspaces: 1) a traditional desktop research lab, 2) a virtual reality lab, and 3) lab coordinators' office. The IMLS was created, in part, to provide graduate students with an opportunity to actively engage in mentorship-guided research and develop the skills necessary for work at public and private research jobs, as well as academic positions.
