NeuroTask Scripting

Create an online psychological experiment in a hours, not weeks

NeuroTask Scripting is currently in so the called 'closed beta' testing stage, allowing new members to work with the system by invitation only. We expect to be finished with testing in January 2017 and will then open registration for everyone. In 2015 and 2016 many types of experiments have been run with NeuroTask Scripting Users ranged from third-year bachelor students to seasoned researchers. The type of experimental topics included emotion and attention, implicit memory, concept formation, visual attention and very short-term memory, and language. Experiments involved brief presentation of images, video, audio, forced fullscreen, mTurk-based data collection, and many other things you might want to do in an online experiment. We are confident that the system is now ready for serious experimentation online.

In the meantime, check out the (free) book 'Getting Started with NeuroTask Scripting', which gives a good impression of what you can do with the platform.

Or head over to the demo page where you can run demonstration scripts, including full-fledged classic experiments in cognitive psychology and popular neuropsychological tests such as Posner and Keele's experiment with random dot paterns from 1968 or the Card Sorting Test:

This has unfortunately taken much time while the release of Scripting NeuroTask involves setting up a complex administrative system with strict, European legal constraints.
