SchizoidPy is a convenience library for using PsychoPy to do psychology experiments that aren't psychophysics experiments. It's like a GUI library for psychology. You create a schizoidpy.Task object and then call methods on it to solicit ratings on Likert-type scales, numbers typed into a textbox, and the like. Then you say task.done('data.json') to emit the current subject's responses and timing data as JSON.

You should take the absence of documentation as a hint that I'm not making any guarantees about stability. I wrote this thing for my own use. But see Survivor for an example task.

Also included in this repository is, a script for checking whether SchizoidPy's method of sending EEG trigger codes works on your system. It doesn't actually depend on SchizoidPy.

SchizoidPy began life as a spinoff of the generic functions in Cookie.
