Conducting in-person experiments

If you’re a dissertation student, your study should be hosted on SONA so the psychology students can sign up for it, unless your supervisor has agreed that you can recruit outside of the university.

In-person experiments are usually conducted in the experimental cubicles in the Psychology lab (subject to changes in the university’s Covid policy restrictions) or in one of the larger space. We have equipment available which will allow you to complete studies from a range of psychology areas. You can explore the links below to learn what’s available:

It’s good to get in touch with us as soon as you know that you might be running an in-person experiment, especially if you hope to use some of the more advanced kit. Planning experimental studies can be time-consuming, and we can help you get started as soon as possible and ensure that the equipment is suitable for your needs and available.

We usually provide training for experimental researchers on a one-to-one basis as each experiment is different. Depending on demand, we might also run small workshops for groups of students interested in using the same equipment. We’ll notify you about these in advance.
