2D rating grid for mouse movements


#1

I’m new to Psychopy and to Python, but am trying to learn as quickly as possible. I am trying to design an experiment where an image is presented on one side of the screen and a 2-dimensional rating grid (simultaneously measuring positive and negative emotions) is presented on the right while the image is displayed, and mouse movements (x-y) within the grid are sampled continuously for the duration. Could someone guide me? Help would be much appreciated!

Look at the various options available within the graphical mouse component in Builder. You can choose to record the mouse position continually, and record which of a variety of named stimuli are clicked upon. If writing your own experiment from scratch, you could use such Builder-generated code as a guide.

Thanks, Michael. I will play around with it and come back here with questions.
