Matlab for Psychologists
Matlab is a wonderful program for data analysis if you know how to use it, but it can be a bit intimidating because everything tends to be described for mathematicians. So over the last year I've compiled a basic guide to tell you only the bits of Matlab which you need to know for running and analysing psychology experiments. It is in the form of a tutorial, and assumes that you know nothing about Matlab but have access to it and can work through the examples and exercises.
The tutorial is a pdf file containing notes, examples and a glossary. You will need a few extra files, just unzip them in the directory you will be using for matlab, and start playing. The only way to really learn Matlab is by using it, so just try stuff!
