Kleiner, M. (2013). Introduction to Matlab and PsychophysicsToolbox. Talk presented at 36th European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP 2013). Bremen, Germany.

Psychtoolbox-3 is a cross-platform, free and open-source software toolkit for the Linux, MacOSX and Windows operating systems. It extends the GNU/Octave and Matlab programming environments with functionality that allows to conduct neuroscience experiments in a relatively easy way, with a high level of flexibility, control and precision. It has a number of coping mechanisms to diagnose and compensate for common flaws found in computer operating systems and hardware. It also takes unique advantage of the programmability of modern graphics cards and of low-level features of other computer hardware, operating systems and open-source technology to simplify many standard tasks, especially for realtime generation and post-processing of dynamic stimuli. This tutorial aims to provide an introduction into the effective use of Psychtoolbox. However, participants of the tutorial are encouraged to state their interest in specific topics well ahead of time, so i can try to tailor large parts of the tutorial to the actual interests of the audience if there happens to be clusters of common wishes. Ideally this will be interactive rather than a lecture. Wishes can be posted to the issue tracker at GitHub ( ) with the label [ecvp2013], or via e-mail to with the subject line [ecvp2013ptb].
