The Psychology Department is involved in several of the Interdisciplinary Centres at Lancaster University: Security Lancaster, the Centre for Ageing Research, and the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS).
Some of the software we used for teaching and research is custom-written for the department. We're making some of it available for free use by non-profit, non-commercial organisations. If you have questions or comments about these applications please contact Simon Slavin.
