At its core, jsPsych utilizes modular "plugins" to define different types of tasks or trials in an experiment. Researchers can combine these plugins, customize their parameters, and design intricate experiments with precise control over stimuli presentation and data collection.
Several factors contribute to jsPsych's surge in popularity:
jsPsych seamlessly collects data during experiment runs, recording responses, timings, and more. This data can then be exported for further analysis, ensuring researchers have all the information they need at their fingertips.
While jsPsych is powerful on its own, platforms like Cognition elevate its capabilities:
