Engineering consultation and support services are available to support a range of technical topics, including data processing, laboratory equipment, and implementation of experiment designs.
Examples of engineering services:
- Implement experiment design in E-Prime, Matlab, or Python
- Write programs to process experimental data
- Add gaze-contingent behavior to eye tracking experiments
- Research Technology Consultation
- Specify and install equipment for remote observation of a testing space
- Specify and install computer and A/V equipment for stimulus delivery
- Database Development & Hosting
- Create web-based databases of research participants, schedules, and research data
- Databases that are developed by the CTC can be hosted on a CTC-managed server for a monthly fee (rate not available for subsidy). The server is on the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Information Technology (DoIT)’s restricted data network, with encrypted back-ups occurring nightly. Users can access the database using a custom domain name, with access restricted by UW-Madison NetID, if desired.
- WISP: A MATLAB-based program for creating and running experimental paradigms such as the Head-Turn Preference Protocol and Looking-While-Listening. Developed for the Infant Learning Laboratory.
- Peyecoder: An open-source program for coding eye movements in Looking-While-Listening experiments. Developed for the Little Listeners Laboratory.
- Salty: Python script to compute inter-rater reliability by comparing SALT (Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts) files. Developed for the Wisconsin Intelligibility, Speech, and Communication Laboratory.
