De acuerdo con sus autores, praat es «hacer fonética con la máquina». A través de su interfaz gráfica,están disponibles algunas funcionalidades de análisis de voz : espectogramas, cocleogramas y afinación y extracción de formantes. También están disponibles tanto síntesis articulatoria como síntesis de afinación, formantes e intensidad. Otras funciones son segmentación, etiquetado utilizando el alfabeto fonético y cálculo de estadísticas. Praat es configurable y extensible a través de su propio lenguaje para elaborar scripts y comunicarse con otros programas.

Psignifit permite el ajuste de las funciones psicométricas a los conjuntos de datos, mientras mantiene el control total sobre un gran número de parámetros. Los datos se pueden obtener a partir de archivos de texto, o a través de una tubería «pipe».

Psignifit realiza el cálculo de los intervalos de confianza, así como pruebas de bondad de ajuste.

Esta es la versión para línea de comandos.

PsychoPy provides an environment for creating psychology stimuli using Python scripting language. It combines the graphical strengths of OpenGL with 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. PsychoPy features

  • IDE GUI for coding in a powerful scripting language (Python)
  • Builder GUI for rapid development of stimulation sequences
  • Use of hardware-accelerated graphics (OpenGL)
  • Integration with Spectrascan PR650 for easy monitor calibration
  • Simple routines for staircase and constant stimuli experimental methods as well as curve-fitting and bootstrapping
  • Simple (or complex) GUIs via wxPython
  • Easy interfaces to joysticks, mice, sound cards etc. via PyGame
  • Video playback (MPG, DivX, AVI, QuickTime, etc.) as stimuli
The package is enhanced by the following packages: python-pyoptical

This package includes several procedures used in psychometrics and scaling, including:

  • Cohen's Kappa and weighted Kappa (two-rater agreement tests)
  • Cronbach's Alpha (an item-reliability test)
  • Focused Principal Components Analysis
  • Intraclass correlation coefficients
  • Light's Kappa (an N-rater agreement test)
  • Screeplots and graphical representations of principal components
Remark of Debian Med team: r-cran-psy is orphaned upstream.

Hint to users of statistical psychological software. This package seems to be orphaned upstream. There are several related packages at CRAN for instance. See the list of prospective packages below and drop the Debian Med team a note if you are interested in one of them.

This GNU R package provides a general purpose toolbox for personality, psychometric theory and experimental psychology. Functions are primarily for multivariate analysis and scale construction using factor analysis, principal component analysis, cluster analysis and reliability analysis, although others provide basic descriptive statistics. Item Response Theory is done using factor analysis of tetrachoric and polychoric correlations. Functions for analyzing data at multiple levels include within and between group statistics, including correlations and factor analysis. Functions for simulating and testing particular item and test structures are included. Several functions serve as a useful front end for structural equation modeling. Graphical displays of path diagrams, factor analysis and structural equation models are created using basic graphics. Some of the functions are written to support a book on psychometric theory as well as publications in personality research.

An assortment of functions that could be useful in analyzing data from psychophysical experiments. It includes functions for calculating d' from several different experimental designs, links for m-alternative forced- choice (mafc) data to be used with the binomial family in glm (and possibly other contexts) and self-Start functions for estimating gamma values for CRT screen calibrations.

PyEPL is a stimuli delivery and response registration toolkit to be used for generating psychology (as well as neuroscience, marketing research, and other) experiments.

It provides

  • presentation: both visual and auditory stimuli
  • responses registration: both manual (keyboard/joystick) and sound (microphone) time-stamped
  • sync-pulsing: synchronizing your behavioral task with external acquisition hardware
  • flexibility of encoding various experiments due to the use of Python as a description language
  • fast execution of critical points due to the calls to linked compiled libraries

This toolbox is here to be an alternative for a widely used commercial product E'(E-Prime)

This package provides PyEPL for supported versions of Python.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: python-pyoptical

This metapackage will install Debian packages which might be useful for carrying out any experiment relating physical stimuli and their psychological effects.

The selection of packages is targeting software for stimuli delivery. For additional software related to the analysis of the acquired data refer to science-neuroscience-cognitive, med-imaging depending on the domain of application. Additionally look into science-bci since those often provide a complete loop frameworks including stimuli delivery.
