Reducing the harm associated with problem gambling is one of the research areas the new Centre for Gambling Research at the University of B.C. will focus on, according to its director.

Luke Clark said Wednesday that the centre is one of a handful of gambling research centres in the world with a “casino lab.” Clark and his research team will be using four slot machines to collect real-time data such as pulse rate, sweat and facial muscle movement from people as they gamble.
