A escolha de software e hardware na psicolinguística: revisão e opinião

Thiago Oliveira da Motta Sampaio

Abstract


Nos últimos anos, diversos softwares foram criados para auxiliar a elaboração de experimentos em ciências cognitivas. A oferta de softwares de simples utilização deveria facilitar o trabalho dos iniciantes, porém, acabou trazendo novos problemas e dúvidas. Que software usar? Qual deles é o mais adequado ao meu estudo e por quê? Através de uma revisão sobre computação, linguagem de programação e técnicas de apresentação de estímulos visuais, este artigo pretende fomentar a discussão a respeito (i) dos diversos tipos de softwares para estimulação, (ii) da importância de conhecer os detalhes técnicos do hardware utilizado e (iii) da compatibilização hardware-software-método como uma variável a ser controlada durante o desenvolvimento do protocolo experimental.
