Auditory list members may be interested in the release of a new version of Presentation 0.60, a free Windows program for real-time stimulus delivery and experimental control. Now you can: 1. Zip your experiments and stimuli into a single file for easy exchange using the one-click "Package" function. Or publish them in NBS Archive of Neurobehavioral Experiments and Stimuli and get a link so that your online readers can download and view your experiments as they read your manuscripts. You can also search the archive for experiments and examples posted by others, then download and run them on your own computer. 2. Analyze complex events using integrated event analysis tools. Immediately output subsets of events in table format for analysis by other programs. 3. Use the Matlab interface to use Matlab scripts to synthesize sounds or analyze results during Presentation experiments. 4. Integrate your custom software using the general purpose COM interface. 5. Create and move 3D objects, with full control of texture, lighting, and object position. Synthesize visual stimuli in real time using primitive forms (spheres, cubes, planes, cones, etc.) or import 3D objects with bitmapped textures and transparency for special effects. 6. Let subjects control stimulus delivery and feedback by themselves in Autorun mode. Presentation continues to support simultaneous control of up to four independent sound sources and monitors stimuli and responses with sub-ms timing precision that is verified for each stimulus and response event. Thanks to your support Presentation has been downloaded by more than 6,000 scientists, with more than 17,000 total downloads. Thanks to a grant from the NINDS, Presentation will be distributed for free until 2004. For your free copy visit David L.
