Visual Basic for Psychologists

Visual Basic is a programming language that combines the use of a friendly graphical user interface and the easy-to-learn BASIC programming language. These unique characteristics make Visual Basic perhaps the most useful tool for the development of computer-controlled experimental procedures (e.g. matching-to-sample tasks, schedules of reinforcement, etc.).

When you visit the NUI page linked above, you will find useful tools for the development of computer-controlled experimental procedures, as well as some links to other websites about Visual Basic programming. Furthermore, some of the programs are freely available to download. These pages are not intended for programming experts, but are aimed at psychologists using Visual Basic as a tool for designing behavior-analytic experiments.
