Help comments, demonstration scripts and a book
At present Palamedes does not have its own user manual or separate
on-line documentation. However, all
user-end routines/scripts contain
information on their function and usage that can be inspected
Matlab 'help' function (type help followed by the routine/script
name). Each of the help sections will contain
executable example code.
The Demo scripts in the PalamedesDemos folder demonstrate all major
and are each heavily commented.
The use and operation of the Palamedes routines and
scripts as well as the theory behind them are described in greater detail
the following book, which is now available:
Kingdom, F.A.A. & Prins, N. (2010) Psychophysics:
A Practical Introduction. Academic Press: an imprint of Elsevier, London
Note however that the citation for Palamedes will remain as:
Prins, N & Kingdom, F. A. A. (2009) Palamedes: Matlab routines for analyzing psychophysical
Coming soon: The 2nd Edition of Psychophysics: A Practical Introduction!
new in the second edition:
- A brand new chapter on Summation measures
- Other chapters overhauled to incorporate
- Detail added where we found out that it would be useful (based on feedback on the 1st Edition)
usage of Palamedes is now explained in separate text boxes and no longer intermixed with explanation of concepts
on Palamedes usage have also been updated to keep up with the continuous development of Palamedes
