NeuroCoder – pydicom
DICOM is a medical standard for storing image data from a large range of devices. As a Cognitive Neuroscientist, the primary data I am currently interested in is magnetic resonance imaging data. Now the raw data as received from the radiographer is in the DICOM file format.
Prespy – Presentation in python
Presentation is a Windows-based program for stimulus delivery and interfacing with hardware tailored for Neuroscientists and Psychologists. It is script based, basically abstracting away the low-level communication with display and sound card drivers, input devices and more to allow researchers to quickly implement experiments for their research.
Whilst it does its job well at making life easier for researchers to create powerful and fast experiments, because of its target market I find myself as a programmer constantly at odds with some of the design decisions.
