LabExP explores the subjective aspects of experience. Research at LabExP analyses perceptive and cognitive processes from a qualitative viewpoint. Experiments are conducted on colour and context, colour and depth, colour and light, visual categorization of natural shapes, and naturally biased association between visual and acoustic stimuli. The experiments aim at providing full descriptions of direct experience, as well as the identification of the conditions helping or hindering the appearance and evidence of perceived phenomena through a variety of methods (direct evaluation, Osgood differential semantics, and correspondence analysis).
Experimental stimuli can be presented on a TFT EIZO screen color edge or in a Viewing Booth VeriVide CAC 60-5 with Lights D65, D50, F, TL84, UV. The ISHIHARA 'Pseudo-isochromatic Plates' is used to check for colour deficiences; a NCS Colour Scan 2.0, and the NCS Lightness meter is used to derive NCS notation of coloured samples. Statistical analyses are conducted with ANOVA and R.
