I’m using Psychopy version 1.84.2 on Windows.
What are you trying to achieve?:
I have created a task where participants are presented with a range of stimulus images (84) repeated 8 times. This is done via a loop accessing stimuli randomly from an excel list. I want the stimuli to be presented randomly, without the previous or next stimulus on on the excel list appearing subsequently (e.g., Stim_2 can’t followed by Stim_1 or Stim_3).
I’ve seen some threads discussing randomisation without repeated stimuli, but not without repeats from the neighbouring stimuli on a list.
It would also be great if there was a solution that could be updated to increase the number of neighbouring list stimuli that are not put in a row, as I may need to make it so the two surrounding list stimuli are not presented subsequently (e.g., Stim_3 cannot be followed by Stim_1, Stim_2, Stim_4, or Stim_5).
Here are some photos of the experiment set up in case it is useful.
Thanks so much!
