His research interests include food preferences, effects of odorant administration on performance, taste and smell psychophysics, psychological-physiological interactions, pain perception, disordered eating, body image, and athletic performance. His on-campus laboratories include the Chemical Senses Laboratory (examining issues related to taste and odor processing, food preferences, and disordered eating), Health Psychophysiology Laboratory (examining issues related to human physical performance, particularly athletic performance), Pain Perception Laboratory (examining those factors related to pain perception in humans), Sleep Performance Laboratory (examining those factors related to adequate sleep and subsequent effects of sleep on cognitive performance), Virtual Reality Driving Laboratory (examining those factors related to improving driving performance), and Sensory Attenuation Laboratory (examining the effects of sensory deprivation on human performance).

Dr. Raudenbush has made over 100 research presentations, procured 3 patents and 26 external grant funds (including grants from governmental agencies such as NASA and the National Science Foundation), and written over 70 published works (including over 30 journal articles, 2 books, 3 book chapters, and 2 laboratory manuals).
