LEAD has a complete facility designed for the study of musical cognition and emotion.
Psychoacoustical studies are carried out in small double-walled anechoic chambers (90 dBA sound insulation) or larger single-walled chambers (60 dBA sound insulation).

The study of emotions generated by music is done in a sound immersion studio with a 5.1 Audio system that allows highly realistic reproduction of music as it would be heard at a concert. The facility is also used in studies on sound spatialization in which listeners must learn the rules of sound source movements with which they are presented.

Finally, musical performance and sight-reading is currently being done with a Yamaha midi piano with an integrated eye-tracking system.
