Cognitive Ergonomics Laboratory

Established in 1992

The Cognitive Ergonomics Laboratory was established at North Carolina State University in 1992. The laboratory was located in Poe Hall on the main campus with Dr. Michael S. Wogalter as the director. The lab was dedicated to conduct research in the area of cognitive ergonomics while training students to become the research scientists and human factors practitioners of tomorrow. The lab became virtual with no physical presence starting in the Spring of 2013.
