While some research starts in the field, other research starts in a laboratory. Lab research is referring to the research which is done inside the lab. At skins, we set up experiments and tests inside a controlled environment (i.e. Laboratory). In this way, students will be able to test their theories precisely and their finding’s reliability is ensured because the experiments and tests will not be affected by the other variables. For example, using Infrared thermography for research on skin temperature post-exercise. The subject will be required to undertake the exercise in a temperature-controlled room to reduce the effects of the environment such as sunlight and wind.
