In the Media Psychology Lab, we study the cognitive processes, emotions, and behavior underlying media and technology interactions (uses and effects). We analyze the subjects’ physiological response (heart rate, skin conductance, emotional response…) to understand how they perceive, process, and respond to media messages (radio, audio, podcast, audiobooks, television…) and the interaction with technology (Virtual Reality, Smart Speakers…).

Specific Studies

An impact communication requires a proven message. In our laboratory we demonstrate with our studies that communication is not improvised, but investigated. Therefore, we carry out specific studies for institutions and companies that want to study the effectiveness of their messages. Research can help you succeed with your audience. Write us and we will inform you.
