This page offers several demo production and perception experiments using the PsychoPy builder view, along with their tutorials. We are happy to share our materials to researchers who are interested in creating and running experiments; feel free to modify them for your experiments.

The demo experiments were created using PsychoPy 1.85.2; we recommend this version for Windows users. If you are a Mac user, we recommend installing the latest MacOS version. You can start by downloading PsychoPy and our materials (tutorials and demo experiments) and setting up a folder to contain our experiment files.
