We use a variety of tools and applications in our lab.
Many of our behavioral tasks have been programmed into PsychoPy, an open source software based within the Python language. This program is also free to download. We use PsychoPy for many of our tasks, presenting stimuli and collecting user input.
Almost all of our data analysis is now being conducted using the R Project for Statistical Computing. This program is free to download and is open source, allowing users to create and distribute packages and custom functions to meet their needs. We use R to manipulate data, calculate statistics, and create graphs and visualizations of data.
