PsychoPy3: Easy, precise, flexible and now online. A training session for Academic Staff.

PsychoPy is an open-source application allowing you run a wide range of neuroscience, psychology and psychophysics experiments. It’s a free, powerful alternative to Presentation™ or e-Prime™, written in Python (a free alternative to Matlab™ ).

The PsychoPy team has, for some time, been trying to make a single package that is easy enough for teaching, precise enough for psychophysics and flexible enough for everything else.

In this session, for academic staff, Jon Peirce will attempt to summarise the ways in which we have been successful in that endeavour, and also the areas in which we still hope to improve. We will also look at the new provision of tools to aid you in discovering, sharing and launching studies on the internet, all from within the PsychoPy application.


A working lunch will be provided.

Jon will be delivering this session over a lunchtime whilst undertaking a 3 day long ESRC DTC Advanced Training workshop, training Social Science PhD students in the application of PsychoPy. For this reason, this session will be taking place in the Zeeman Building where the student training is taking place.

So that we can get an idea of numbers for catering purposes please use the booking form to express your interest in attending this session with Jon. If you later find that you are unable to attend please let us know as soon as possible via Thank you.
