These are sample scripts, replicating classic, unique, or interesting
studies in experimental psychology. They are intended both to demonstrate
the results of the studies and to show what E-Prime can do as an experiment
generation framework. They are free to download, though we ask that you
credit this project if you use them in a public context.
If you would like to download the scripts and not look at explanations, you can look at the Script List.
Click on experiment names to find out more information and to download the scripts.
Explanations of categories are forthcoming. Any experiment listing that does not include
a link (in boldface text) denotes an experiment that was in the queue to be created when funding ran out for this project.
Those "missing" experiments will only become available if someone programs them or we get some additional funding.

experiments finished for here. If you have one that you would like to see replicated,
please email Brian MacWhinney (email@example.com).
The one experiment here is itself using an earlier experimental paradigm used to measure basic
reaction time and discrimination ability.
