  2. Hello, I have a question about DMDX. According to the manual I need to have a PIO (joystick/hardware) to run the experiment. Is there another option where I can just use the keyboard instead?

    • You can use the Keyboard. “id keyboard”. If you do the Input test, you should see the keyboard and can try out the keys. You can also see what the name of the keyboard is (e.g. “Tastatur” on many German computers). You need to use the name you get from the input test for the “id” parameter. If reaction-times are what you are after, I would recommend a USB gamepad as it is cheap and provides more reliable measurements than a keyboard. If you need more keys as on a keyboard, you can get special keyboards that are more reliable.
