Re: Perceptual experiments

As long as we are all throwing our 2 cents in, I'd suggest Matlab as a great place to start. It has the advantage of being a single environment in which you can design stimuli, collect and analyze data and perform model simulations. It also provides a very flexible graphical output mechanism. In addition, the number of labs using it is very large, providing a wide range of fellow-users to draw upon.

In terms of programming, I have written experiments in Max/MSP, Psyscope, Pascal and Matlab and find Matlab to be a wonderful compromise between high-level opaque programs and low-level, steep-learning-curve languages.
