Designed For Researchers, Not Programmers

Every experiment builder we know of relies on scripting or programming. Except SuperLab — since 1991. SuperLab also delivers cross-platform freedom: a license allows you to run it on either Mac or Windows.

Stimulus Types

Some files types may be supported on only one platform, but all features work on either Mac or Windows version.

Picture Files
Most file formats are supported.

 

Text
Kanji, Mandarin, or English, SuperLab displays it all.

Movies
Play one or several movies at the same time.

 

Sound Files
Play sounds per trial or throughout experiment.

RSVP
Rapid Serial Visual Presentation of text has never been easier.

 

Digital Output
Analyze EEG/ERP data better by sending event codes via StimTracker or I/O card.

Self-Paced Reading
Break text into segments and let SuperLab present one segment at a time.

 

Serial Output
Send control data to any device with a serial port.

Lots of Other Features

 

Randomization
In addition to trial randomization, SuperLab can vary:

  • Position of visual stimuli

  • Color of text

  • Exposure time or participant response’s time limit

Feedback
Use any stimulus type as feedback, based on correctness of participant's response or reaction time.

 

Looping
Repeat trials until a condition is met. Memory and learning experiments have never been easier to build.

Contingencies
No programming. Point and click with your mouse to create if/then/else flow.

Go/No-Go Experiments
Built-in option for when participants should not respond.

 

Participant Groups
Present only specific blocks of trials or use the same random sequence on per group basis.

Stimulus lists
Simplify creation of experiments by using stimulus lists for pictures, movies, sounds, or text.

Experiment Packaging
Save your experiment and all stimuli files in a single, compressed file.
