The first experimental laboratory in psychology was founded in Leipzig, Germany, where Wilhelm Wundt mainly investigated feelings and sensations by employing experimental methods. Almost a century and half after is debut, the experimental laboratories have extremely evolved in terms of apparatus, instruments, and recording techniques. Under a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective, we can now better understand human cognitive and affective processes. As current zeitgeist has placed increasing emphasis upon the ecologically valid research, an “out-of-the-lab” approach, integrated with both human and nonhuman research, is expected to leverage scientific advances in the field of human behavior.
