The third Year research project gave me first-hand experience in setting up and running a psychology experiment in a laboratory from start to finish including seeking ethics approval and later interpreting the findings. I had the opportunity to study a new research area that was within my interest. It left me feeling I could run my own experiment in the future with the knowledge I had gained.
