Have you ever wondered what goes on in a psychology lab?

Well, now you can come and see for yourself.  You will not only be contributing to science but you will also receive a modest monetary compensation for your time.

To find out what studies you can sign up to, all you need to do is create a participant account in SONA, our research recruitment system.  

On the SONA System you will be able to:

  • Sign up for experiments with just a click
  • Choose the time slot that works best for you
  • Access the system 24/7 and while on the go through the SONA mobile app
  • Receive reminders of all the studies you have signed up to do the next day, so you won't miss any!
  • New studies will be added on a regular basis, please keep coming back to check for new experiments."


The Department of Psychology is now open for research.  We have reviewed and implemented University guidance in line with Governmental advice to create a COVID-secure research environment.

We look forward to welcoming participants to our studies.
