OpenSesame Tutorials

We design and program our studies using OpenSesame a experiment building environment, within which we can run a number of Python libraries specifically designed for implementing experiments in the behavioral sciences.


Beginners can use OpenSesame’s comprehensive graphical, point-and-click interface. For advanced users, OpenSesame supports Python scripting.

To get started with OpenSesame follow this beginner tutorial. For more advanced users, try the intermediate tutorial.

You can also download sample experiments built using OpenSesame from GitHub.
