An alternative to MATLAB, psychopy by Jonathan Peirce is an open-source package for creating and managing psychology stimuli in Python.
PsychoPy 1.62.02 combines the graphical strengths of OpenGL with the easy Python syntax to give psychophysics a free and simple stimulus presentation and control package.
It can allow the presentation of stimuli and collections of data for a wide range of psychology, neuroscience and psychophysics experiments.
Most important functions of PsychoPy [psychopy1.62.02.exe]:

Features:

• Simple install process

• Platform independent - run the same script on Win, OS X or Linux

• Flexible stimulus units (degrees, cm, or pixels)

• Coder interface for those that like to program

• Builder interface for those that don’t

• Input from keyboard, mouse or button boxes

• Multi-monitor support

• Automated monitor calibration (requires PR650 or Minolta LS110)

Hardware Integration:

communication via serial ports

• Communication via parallel ports

• Communication via compiled drivers (dlls and dylibs)

Interfaces are prebuilt for:

• Spectrascan PR650

• Minolta LS110

• Cambridge Research Systems Bits++

• Cedrus response boxes (RB7xx series)

Huge variety of stimuli generated in real-time:

• Linear gratings, bitmaps constantly updating

• Radial gratings

• Random dots

• Movies (DivX, mov, mpg. . . )

• Text (unicode in any truetype font)

• Shapes

• Sounds (tones, numpy arrays, wav, ogg. . . )
News in the current PsychoPy - 0MB version:

fixed: problem with RadialStim causing subsequent TextStims not to be visible

• FIXED: bug with saving StairHandler data as . xlsx

added: option for gui. fileOpenDlg and fileSaveDlg to receive a custom file filter

• FIXED: builder implementation of staircases (initialisation was buggy)

• FIXED: added Sound. setSound() so that sounds in builder can take new values each trial

• FIXED: when a Routine was copied and pasted it didn’t update its name properly (e. g. when inserted into the Flow it kept the origin name)

• FIXED: color rendering for stimuli on non-shader machines using dkl, lms, and named color spaces

• ADDED: data. QuestHandler (Thanks to Zarrar Shehzad). This is much like StairHandler but uses the QUEST routine of Watson and Pelli

• CHANGED: TextStim orientation now goes the other way, for consistency with other stimuli (thanks Manuel Spitschan for noticing)

• FIXED: Problem with DotStim using ‘sqr’ fieldShape

• ADDED: MovieStim now has a setMovie() method (a copy of loadMovie())

• FIXED: problem with MovieStim. loadMovie() when a movie had already been loaded
