Psychstudio news - March 2020

Brand new this month:

  • Streaming video! Stream uploaded video in mp4, mov and webm formats. Two new components are available:
  • Both video components can also have events associated with them that trigger when the media has finished playing (e.g. "move to next procedure" and "move to next trial").

  • Laterality Quotient calculator. Simply a fun, quick calculator for assessing handedness according to the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory.

Price drop!
We're pleased to announce that we've lowered the cost of the Researcher account to make Psychstudio even more affordable to more researchers and academics.

Finally, some advice.
We've noticed a pattern in recent support calls and we really would like to help others in a similar position. Please, if you find yourself building a study with numerous questionnaires of similar format, STOP! There is an easier way.

Contact support or look carefully at the stimulus management and trials documentation. For a more hands-on approach, take a look at some tutorials with trials in them (like Lexical decision task or Stroop effect) or copy an example project that contains trials. It saddens us to see a study take hours to build when it could literally take only a few minutes using a stimulus set on the trials timeline.

We're happy to jump into your study and change things up, fix things, build things, point you to the right documentation, discuss and/or implement an experiment design, or do whatever is needed to get you up and running efficiently. Psychstudio is a very powerful experiment building platform, and with some practice, is incredibly fast to use.

As always, if you'd like to request a feature, discuss an experiment's design, or if you have any questions about how to implement something, please email me at or reply to this email. Alternatively, you can contact or follow me on twitter.
