Subliminal program – This nifty little program allows instructors to show an image of their choosing such as a picture of an animal throughout a lecture at subliminal speeds. While the applications to the consciousness and perception units are obvious, this program is particularly useful in reviewing concepts in the research unit. A pre-lecture warm up such as asking students to list an animal can be used for baseline data collection. The speed at which the image is shown and the number of times the image is shown can be set as the independent variables. After the lecture during which the image of an animal is shown periodically and unknown to students, the instructor can ask student to list what animal pops in their mind. A debrief is a great way to reinforce research concepts.
