New version of Presentation software -- free until 2004

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
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.
