The MSP Lab...

The primary research facility within CATSS is the Multi-Sensory Perception (MSP) Laboratory in Elliott Hall. The MSP Lab consists of two rooms, each with a large sound-attenuating chamber for participant testing, and many specialized pieces of equipment (see below). The MSP Lab is a shared research space and is available to groups throughout the University of Minnesota community, as well as industry groups associated with CATSS.
