Facilities

 

Faculty offices and research laboratories, as well as the teaching labs, are in Rudman, Spaulding and Conant Halls. There are two secure animal care facilities where rats, mice, pigeons and other experimental subjects can be maintained.

Psychology Aviary -- The aviary is a research facility in which students can observe the behavior of a wide variety of birds in a controlled environment.  This facility has a large observation room which has been used to investigate, caching behavior, navigation and spatial memory.

The University of New Hampshire (UNH) has several marine, estuarine and freshwater laboratories: Anadromous Fish and Aquatic Invertebrate Research Lab (AFAIR), Coastal Marine Lab (CML), and Jackson Estuarine Lab (JEL).  Students and faculty conduct ecological and behavioral field studies on aquatic vertebrates and invertebrates.

Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML) -- The Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML), operated jointly by UNH and Cornell University, is located on Appledore Island, seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire.  SML focuses on undergraduate education in marine biology, offering over 20 summer credit courses, including Field Animal Behavior and Field Ornithology.

Hubbard Center for Genome Studies -- The Hubbard Center for Genome Studies (HCGS) is an invaluable resource in advancing faculty research.  The Center also provides an opportunity for students to learn genomic techniques using new technology.

Confocal Imaging Center -- The Confocal Imaging Center utilizes a state-of-the-art fluorescent confocal microscope to image biological and material science specimens that contain fluorescent probes. The instrument permits the reconstruction of three-dimensional images and animations of dynamic biological processes in living cells.
