Software: MonkeyLogic

MonkeyLogic is a MATLAB toolbox for the design and control of psychophysical tasks with high temporal precision. It allows for the flexible construction of sensory, motor, or cognitive tasks based upon the interaction of a subject with visual stimuli through the use of eye-position, joystick, button, lever, and/or keyboard input.

MonkeyLogic is currently being developed and maintained in collaboration with the laboratory of Wael Assad at Brown University, the Laboratory of Neuropsychology at the NIMH,  Edward Ryklin (Ryklin Software), the contributions of users, and the helpful support of Mathworks.

If you use our software in your published research, please reference one of the papers describing it, as this will allow us to more easily continue funding ongoing support and development.
