PsychoPy provides an environment for creating psychology stimuli
using Python scripting language.  It combines the graphical
strengths of OpenGL with easy Python syntax to give psychophysics
a free and simple stimulus presentation and control package.
The goal is to provide, for the busy scientist, tools to control
timing and windowing and a simple set of pre-packaged stimuli and
methods.  PsychoPy features
- IDE GUI for coding in a powerful scripting language (Python)
- Builder GUI for rapid development of stimulation sequences
- Use of hardware-accelerated graphics (OpenGL)
- Integration with Spectrascan PR650 for easy monitor calibration
- Simple routines for staircase and constant stimuli experimental
methods as well as curve-fitting and bootstrapping
- Simple (or complex) GUIs via wxPython
- Easy interfaces to joysticks, mice, sound cards etc. via PyGame
- Video playback (MPG, DivX, AVI, QuickTime, etc.) as stimuli
