Easy control of typical experiments in psychology and neuroscience, including stimulus presentation, timing, response collection and logging.

Project description

This package is designed to enable quick and easy development of experiments in psychology/neuroscience. Most experiment scripts are coded up with a fairly ad-hoc for t in trials approach, which generally leads to inaccurate timing, accumulation of lag over trials, and in catastrophic cases, failure to log all the experimental parameters and responses of interest. It can also be surprisingly difficult to achieve more sophisticated presentation schemes (e.g., presenting a video while collecting keyboard responses and monitoring MRI scanner pulses) if you are coding everything up from scratch.

# Install clone this repo and do python setup.py install. A reasonably recent version should also be on [pypi](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/expcontrol) so try pip install expcontrol.

# Do I need [psychopy](http://psychopy.org)? It’s not a dependency, but at the moment you won’t be able to use the package for much without it. All the psychopy-dependent code is in the psychopydep module, so psychopy can be swapped out for another timing/opengl/response logging solution as desired.
