PsychoPy is an alternative to Presentation, e-Prime and Inquisit. It is a Python library and application that allows presentation of stimuli and collection of data for a wide range of neuroscience, psychology and psychophysics experiments. When used on DCC computers PsychoPy is guaranteed to be millisecond accurate.

Troubleshooting

Version Change to 1.85

If you use audio in psychopy, but you do not choose the back-end yourself (this is the default method), then sound will be played in a different, more reliable way. This may lead to slightly larger but still small latency.We do not expect this to be problematic. If you have any questions about this, come to TSG. Do you use audio in psychopy and choose your own backend with the following line:

prefs.general['audioLib'] = ['pyo']

change this

prefs.general['audioLib'] = ['sounddevice']

This may lead to slightly larger but still small latency. We do not expect this to be problematic.

If you have any questions about this, come to TSG.
