Mousetrap

Oct 31, 2017

Mousetrap, an open-source software plugin to record and analyze mouse movements in computerized lab experiments, was developed by Pascal Kieslich and Felix Henninger, both located in Germany.


Mousetrap is a plugin that is used with OpenSesame software for mouse-tracking, or the analysis of mouse movements during computerized lab experiments which can serve as an indicator of commitment or conflict in decision making. The integration of Mousetrap with a general-purpose graphical experiment builder also allows users to access other core features and software extensions of OpenSesame, which offers more flexibility to users when designing experiments. Mousetrap is available for use across all platforms (Linux, Windows and Mac) and the data collected with the software can also be imported directly into R for analysis with an available Mousetrap package.
