Experimental psychologists have been waiting for this a long time and now it is there – a free graphical experiment builder! Finally a promising program that makes the switch from E-Prime (the very expensive and at times unstable alternative) quite easy. Check out OpenSesame.

This Friday (January 27) I’m giving a talk at the Laboratoire d’Etude des Mécanismes Cognitifs at Université Lyon 2. I’m looking forward to meeting Emilie Gerbier and her colleagues and to exchange thoughts on research of learning phenomena. I will talk about the measurement of cognitive processes in learning effects using Multinomial Processing Tree models.
