Scripting Language – References

The ERTS scripting language is a special purpose programming language to define reaction time experiments. It has been developed in the 90’s as part of the Experiment RunTime System (ERTS) which has been used by a very large number of researchers over the years to collect data on cognitive tasks. We are proud to offer support for this popular language again to enable researchers to program their own cognitive task paradigms without having deep programming skills.
