The Cyberpsychology Lab is a research centre affiliated with both the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO) and the Pierre-Janet Hospital. The primary goal of the Cyberpsychology Lab of UQO's research team is to study the phenomenon of cyberpsychology from three main perspectives: (1) fundamental (underlying psychological processes); (2) clinical (therapeutic effectiveness) and; (3) applied (practical applications in psychology).

Research at the Cyberpsychology Lab is being conducted at the Pavillon A.-Taché at the Université du Québec en Outaouais. Our research projects are related to the treatment of anxiety disorders, role of presence in virtual reality, neuropsychological assessment, pain distraction, sexual preferences, role of sleep in mental health, pathological gambling and more.
