TECHlab, Georgia Tech’s laboratory for animal behavior, is a recently developed collaborative effort between the Georgia Institute of Technology and Zoo Atlanta. It functions as a think tank where graduate students in both psychology and architecture along with research affiliates from other institutions engage in research using advanced technologies in the areas of behavior, conservation, and education. Researchers at TECHlab currently use The Observer software on PCs, laptops, and handheld computers for the collection and preliminary analyses of behavioral data.
