This is a selection of equipment available to book within the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, most of which can be found at either 26 Bedford Way, or at Chandler House. The facilities are managed by expert support staff, who can also provide training and advice on experimental set up.
The facilities are overseen by an academic or an academic steering group responsible for ensuring that the facility is operated and equipped for maximum benefit to the research community. In most cases, you will need to undergo training or at least an induction to make use of the facilities listed below.
