Stimulus Control is a fork of EAM (https://github.com/eep-lab/eam).
- It is aimed at fast programming of behavioral experiments.
- It can be extended to Design, Present, Record and Archive a wide range of behavioral experiments.
- It was designed for Participants, Researchers and Developers.
- It is a prototype to run non time-critical experiments.
- It is being inspired by OpenSesame, Psychopy and Expyriment.
- Feature positive effect (uses keyboard as operandum)
- Go/No-Go (using keyboard or mouse as operandum)
- MTS (using keyboard or mouse as operandum)
- SPAN (using keyboard or mouse as operandum, work in progress)
- and others
Stimuli (antecedents, consequents):
- Sounds using the (non-free, as in freedom) Bass library (a substitute is in need)
- Images (jpg, bmp, png), opaque or transparent
- Videos using the LCLVLC component and the libvlc library will be implemented.
- Random visual mask
Responses (schedules of reinforcements):
- CRF, EXT
- FT, VT
- FR, VR
- FI, VI,
- DRH, DRL
- Free operant
- Discrete Trials
- Consecutive Hits
- Hit porcentage in Bloc
Blocs of Trials
- Create blocs of trials
- Concatenate blocs of trials
- Concatenate blocs of trials based on participant's performance (if criteria was reached, go to bloc x, if not go to bloc y)
- Starts and endings of trials, Hits and Misses are timestamped by default
- Custom timestamps can be implemented through custom trial types
- For high precision and high granularity timestamps
- We use EpikTimer package on windows
- We use
Pupil Communication (https://github.com/pupil-labs/pupil)
- Auto start/stop of Pupil Recordings
- Auto start/stop (and custom start) of the current selected Pupil Calibration Method
- Prompts for unsuccesful calibration
- More details about our implementation here: https://github.com/cpicanco/pupil-fpc
Cross-Platform. Tested under Windows (7, 8 and 10), Crunchbang 11, Ubuntu LTS (16.04) and Debian 9.
Free software, GPL3, compiled with Lazarus RAD IDE (1.8.2) and FPC (3.0.4).
Core code was written using a Behavior Analytic ontology.
- Adapted from Delphi to Free Pascal compiler and Lazarus development environment
- Replaced old GUI for a new prototype one
- Fixed some timing bugs
- Fixed some bugs related to the TTrial create/free life cycle
- New trial types inherited from TTrial
- Refactoring for better Behavior Analytic ontology fit.
