Paradigm is a new stimulus presentation system for building
interactive, millisecond accurate experiments for linguistics research.
Paradigm lets you build experiments quickly and easily using its intuitive
drag and drop user-interface.

With Paradigm you can:

*Present images/sounds, rating scales, self-paced reading, rich text and

*Present interactive experiments like identification and visual world tasks
using Paradigm's built-in mouse selection (hit testing) to allow subjects
to select visual stimuli with the mouse pointer.

* Distribute 'stand-alone' experiments over the web or in your lab without
the need to buy additional run-time licenses.

* Control external hardware using Paradigm's Parallel and Serial Port
experiment events.

* Perform 'online' experiment control using Paradigm's Python based
scripting language.
