psychopy_ext.exp.Task.setup_task

Task.setup_task()[source]

Does all the dirty setup before running the experiment.

Steps include:
  • Logging file setup (set_logging())
  • Creating a Window (create_window())
  • Creating stimuli (create_stimuli())
  • Creating trial structure (create_trial())
  • Combining trials into a trial list (create_triaList())
  • Creating a TrialHandler using the defined trialList (create_TrialHandler())
Kwargs:
create_win (bool, default: True)

If False, a window is not created. This is useful when you have an experiment consisting of a couple of separate sessions. For the first one you create a window and want everything to be presented on that window without closing and reopening it between the sessions.
