I like to write code. Some software development is a necessary
component of my research. This includes code for stimulus display, data
processing and visualization, as well as various shell scripts. Most
of the stuff that I think might be useful to others is available for
download from the lab
software repository. You should also have a look at the
which is the main source of documentation for the lab software.
I also work on some projects for fun. These include:
- Vischeck- a website where you can
simulate the effects of various color deficits on
You can also download plugins
for running the simulation yourself. The Vischeck code is now part
of the Gimp open-source image processing
package as display filter.
Alex Wade and I started
this around 2000 and it has grown to be somewhat popular.
We wrote and maintain the code that runs the simulations and built the
website using PHP.
- TinyEyes- a website where you can
simulate how a baby sees the world. This image processing site uses the
same core simulation engine as vischeck, but uses spatial-color filter
parameters that were estimated based on infant vision research.
