I carry out experiments in the Language Sciences building at UCL (Chandler House) and the Education, Communication and Language Sciences (King George VI) building at Newcastle.
I want all participants and collaborators to feel welcome and as comfortable as possible. You can ask me for any help or assistance you need and I will do my best to provide it. Below is some information that may help you decide where to take part in experiments or if you need to request additional help accessing the buildings in which I work.
You will be seated for the duration of the experiment. We will ask you if you need a break at regular intervals. You can also tell us you need a break at any time. We will provide water for you. Snacks are generally not allowed in the recording booths but you can eat them outside.
