The Psycholinguistics Lab is based in Room NG.15 of the Samuel Alexander Building at The University of Manchester. Our facilities are available for use by staff and students at The University who wish to carry out psycholinguistic or experimental linguistic work.
Our Lab Director is Vera Hohaus. Our Lab Manager is Paul Stott.
If you'd like to get in touch to discuss ongoing research, or to discuss how we might support you in your own research, please get in touch with The Lab Manager.
The lab is equipped to carry out a wide range of psycholinguistic and experimental linguistic studies. We have state of the art equipment for lab members to conduct, for instance:
Where participants read sentences while we record time-locked eye-movement data.
Where participants read sentences while we record time-locked brain-wave activity.
Where participants make decisions while we record how long it takes them to make those decisions.
Where participants make decisions while we measure the trajectory their mouse takes, and how long it takes them to get to that point, during decision-making.
Where we measure how long it takes participants to read a given string of text.
We may also be able to offer guidance and technical support on experimental paradigms not listed here. Please get in touch with The Lab Manager for more information and to discuss individual needs.
We offer training in:
