Vision and Neuroscience Matlab Toolbox

Psychtoolbox interfaces between Matlab and the computer hardware. The PTB core routines provide access to the display frame buffer and color lookup table, reliably synchronize with the vertical screen retrace, support sub-millisecond timing, expose raw OpenGL commands, support video playback and capture as well as low-latency audio, and facilitate the collection of observer responses. Ancillary routines support common needs like color space transformations and the QUEST threshold seeking algorithm.
