Dear all,

We developed a free drag-and-drop graphic user interface for Matlab
Psychtoolbox (PTB) during the past two years, which we dubbed PsyBuilder. The
builder allows users to graphically implement sophisticated experimental
tasks through intuitive drag-and-drop without any script. The output codes
have built-in optimized timing precision and come with detailed comments to
facilitate customization. Using this drag and drop interface (similar to
E-prime), now it’s possible even for a newbie to build a full Matlab PTB
script within 10 mins. We believe that PsyBuilder will be useful for both
experts and novices because 1) it can drastically cut the programming time
needed for almost any experiment; 2) it will dramatically flatten the
learning curve for people without programming experience. Therefore, we
believe that PsyBuilder will make the PTB platform extremely accessible and
help to expand the user base.

Now, we are so proud that our free cross-platform software Psybuilder is
ready to use. The software can be downloaded from our brand new forum:

Please see our just accepted paper in AMPPS for a detailed introduction and
a brief tutorial about Psybuilder:

open-source, cross-platform graphical experiment builder with built-in
performance optimization for behavioral and neural sciences. Advances in
Methods and Practices in Psychological Science. Accepted and in press. Doi.
