The Center is located in a pleasant two-story brick house halfway between the biology and psychology buildings (409 N. Park Ave.) that serves as a focal point for interactions among students, faculty, and visiting researchers. The house contains a large seminar room, a computer lab, a library, and some office space for members.
Seminar Room and Office Equipment
The seminar room of the CISAB building can be reserved for classes and special events, such as talks, doctoral defenses, and committee meetings. A large central table and over a dozen additional chairs provide ample seating. The room contains a pull-down screen, and we can supply power projectors and laptops on request. A fully functional kitchen and unisex restroom are located just down the hall. Fax and photocopy machines are also available.
William J. Rowland Resource Room
The resource room houses dozens of books in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, biology, and other related topics that were donated by the Rowland family and Professor Emeritus Bill Timberlake. Over 40 journal titles, including Animal Behavior and Memory & Cognition, are available for viewing upon request. The room was created in memory of Bill Rowland, beloved biology professor, mentor, colleague and friend. Bill was a founding member of CISAB and volunteered as director of the REU program from 1995 to 2004. He helped over 20 graduate students earn their doctoral degrees and was an enthusiastic researcher.
We maintain several Windows and Macintosh computers with up-to-date software for shared use by our members. These computers are all connected to the IU network.
Animal Behavior Lab
CISAB's Animal Behavior Lab provides bench space, training, and specialized equipment to IU members interested in incorporating molecular and endocrine techniques into their animal behavior research. For details, visit the lab website.
