Psychophysics Toolbox Version 3 (PTB-3) is a free set of Matlab and
GNU/Octave functions for vision research. It makes it easy to
synthesize and show accurately controlled visual and auditory stimuli
and interact with the observer.
The Psychophysics Toolbox interfaces between Matlab or Octave and the
computer hardware. The Psychtoolbox's core routines provide access to
the display frame buffer and color lookup table, allow
synchronization with the vertical retrace, support millisecond
timing, allow access to OpenGL commands, and facilitate the
collection of observer responses. Ancillary routines support common
needs like color space transformations and the QUEST threshold
seeking algorithm.
This package contains additional binaries (tools/dynamic libraries) used
by both Octave and Matlab frontends.
