-Pkg-Description: generate psychophysical stimuli
- Pygame/pyglet-based Python library to conduct psychophysical experiments.
- PsychoPy is primarily focusing on the visual domain, but additionally
- supports handling pre-generated stimuli, such as movies.

+Pkg-Description: module for creating psychology stimuli in Python
+ PsychoPy combines the graphical strengths of OpenGL with the easy
+ Python syntax to give psychophysics a free and simple stimulus presentation
+ and control package.
+ The goal is to provide, for the busy scientist, tools to control
+ timing and windowing and a simple set of pre-packaged stimuli and methods.
+ * Simple, clean syntax (see the demo code)
+ * Simple (or complex) GUIs via wxPython
+ * Easy interfaces to joysticks, mice, keyboards
+ * Easy interface to parallel and serial ports
+ * Unicode text rendering in any TrueType font
+ * Multi-monitor support (and multiple windows)
+ * Plays movies (mpg, DivX, avi, QuickTime...) as stimuli
+ * All stimuli rendered in realtime (so can be modified in realtime too)
+ * Simple routines for staircase and constant stimuli experimental
+ methods as well as curve-fitting and bootstrapping
+ * Integration with CRS Bits++(for 14bit luminance resolution)
+ * Integration with Spectrascan PR650 for easy monitor calibration

-Pkg-Description: Analysis of MRI and fMRI data - binary
- Leipzig Image Processing and Statistical Inference Algorithms
- The software package LIPSIA was developed by the Max Planck Institute
- of Cognitive Neuroscience, Leipzig, for the data processing and
- evaluation of functional magnetic resonance images. The analysis of
- fMRI data comprises various aspects including filtering, spatial
- transformation, statistical evaluation as well as segmentation and
- visualization. All these aspects are covered by LIPSIA. For the
- statistical evaluation, a number of well established and
- peer-reviewed algorithms were implemented in LIPSIA that allow an
- effcient and user-friendly processing of fMRI data sets. As the
- amount of data that must be handled is enormous, an important aspect
- in the development LIPSIA was the efficiency of the software
- implementation. In LIPSIA, particular emphasis was placed on the
- development of new visualization and segmentation techniques that
- support visualizations of individual brain anatomy so that experts
- can assess the exact location of activation patterns in individual
- brains. LIPSIA is non- commercial. LIPSIA is freely available upon
- request. However, as we don't have suffcient manpower, we can't
- support an unlimited number of LIPSIA users. Therefore, we plan to
- offer LIPSIA initially on lytoa limited number of cooperation
- partners. Please contact us, if you are interested in becoming a
- LIPSIA cooperation partner.
