Paradigm lets you build experiments quickly and easily using it's intuitive
drag and drop user-interface.

With Paradigm you can:

*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.
