SuperLab 4.5 now available
with support for Slimtracker, license leasing, and bug fix.

SuperLab 4.0 is the stimulus presentation software for Mac OS X (10.3.9 or later) and Windows XP/2000.  In development for almost five years, the new SuperLab 4.0 introduces a host of new features, including:

  • Playing movies
  • Stimulus lists
  • Support for JPEG, GIF, PNG, and TIFF files
  • Built-in support for RSVP and self-paced reading
  • Improved support for fMRI and EEG/ERP
  • Trial variables
  • Conditional branching (if/then/else)
  • Multiple input devices in the same experiment

The new version 4.5 is a 100% rewrite of SuperLab and was built from the ground up as a Unicode application that handles Japanese, Chinese, and other international fonts just as easily as it handles English fonts.

SuperLab 4.5 remains, without any doubt, the easiest way to build an experiment while eliminating nearly all the limitations found in earlier versions.

New features

Feature Advantages
Stimuli Lists
Example: if you need to present 150 words or picture files, you can now create a stimulus list and then create a single event that uses that list, rather then create and edit 150 separate events.
QuickTime movies on the Mac, AVI and MPG movies in Windows
Note: At this point, there is no guarantee that SuperLab 4.0 will achieve decent timing while a movie is playing.
Trial Variables
This feature allows you to vary several aspects of an experiment, e.g. vary the duration of a time limit for an event, or present a picture at one of 4 different positions picked at random or in order (instead of having to create 4 separate events).
Event Randomization
Previous versions allowed the randomizing of trials within an event.  You can now randomize events within a trial as well.
String Input
Subjects can now type entire sentences instead of single keys
RSVP Support
Built-in support for Rapid Serial Visual Presentation paradigm
Self-Paced Reading Support
Built-in support for self-paced reading
Support for Key Release
A response can now be the release of a key rather than the pressing of a key
Support for Go/No-Go Experiments
A correct response can now be "None, the participant must not respond"
Support for Between Subject Designs
The new Participant Groups feature makes it easier to handle between subject designs.
Conditional Branching
You can now alter the path of an experiment
fMRI Support
Trials can now be presented at precise intervals
ERP/EEG Support
An experiment can now be paused instead of canceled, and special "events" can be triggered when the experiment starts, pauses, resumes, or ends.  For example, this makes it possible to start and stop the recording of ERP data automatically.
Unicode Support
It is now as easy to develop experiments in Asian and other international languages as it is to do so in English


Enhancements to Existing Features

Feature Advantages
Support for JPEG Files
SuperLab also supports GIF, PNG, and TIFF file formats
Multiple Lines of Text
You are no longer limited to displaying a single line.
Multiple Input Devices
You can now use a response pad, keyboard, and SV-1 voice key all in the same experiment
Improved Standard Mouse Input
You no longer have to specify X,Y position when creating a on-screen response -- simply tell SuperLab to use the stimulus' position.  Position of mouse click is now also being saved.
Multiple Correct Responses
Example:you can now designate "Button 1" and "Button 2" as both being the correct keys.
Improved Feedbacks
Adding feedback to an event is much easier than it was in the previous versions.  You can now also delay the feedback until an event's time limit is up.
Richer Data Files
SuperLab can now save more information in the data file, e.g. what the correct response is supposed to be.
Dynamic Code Values
Code values can now be attached to an event or stimulus list items (in addition to trials).  More importantly, you can now change code values while an experiment is running, e.g. to mark a stimulus as having been presented.
Quick Tour
Stimuli Lists
We will start by describing the Stimulus Lists feature because of its profound impact on everything you do in SuperLab. Say you want to present 100 stimuli. Creating 100 corresponding events, another 100 trials, and linking them together can get tedious quickly. With version 4.0, you can create lists of files (for pictures, sounds, or movies) and lists of words. The screen snapshot below shows a list of files being edited; you can add several files at a time or the entire contents of a folder with a few mouse clicks:
Once created, create an event and tell it to use the stimulus list instead of a file, as shown below:


  • On the PC: Windows 2000 (with Service Pack 4), XP (with Service Pack 2), and Vista
    (For using movies, you need DirectX 9.0 and a video card that works with DirectX 9.0, including support for hardware acceleration and VMR.)

  • On the Mac: Mac OS 10.4.6 (recommended) or Mac OS 10.3.9.  SuperLab 4.0 works on Intel and PowerPC Macs.

SuperLab can play movies on a single core or single processor computer, but playing movies smoothly requires a dual core computer.
