Our lab helped develop the naturalistic and open-sourced video game stimulus Asteroid Impact. We are now making additional improvements to enhance its utility and allow the game to interface with physiological measurement equipment. For a detailed summary of the changes, or to download Asteroid Impact for your own use, visit the game’s page on GitHub.
The Cognitive Communication Science Lab is currently recruiting graduate students (with or without MA). If you are interested in joining the lab, contact Richard Huskey at email@example.com. Funding is guaranteed for the duration of your PhD program. Conference and research travel funds are also available on a competitive basis.
Our lab is presenting research at three upcoming conferences. We hope you can make one of our talks!

The Cognitive Communication Science Lab received a Top Paper Award from the Communication Science and Biology Interest Group at the International Communication Association (ICA) for their paper: The Offramp Problem: Treating Media Psychology as an Insular Field Inhibits Theoretical and Empirical Progress. The paper is the result of a collaboration between researchers at The Ohio State University, Texas Tech University, and the University of California Santa Barbara. Authors include: Jacob Fisher, Justin Keene, Richard Huskey, and Rene Weber. This paper will be presented at the 2017 ICA annual meeting in San Diego, California.
