DirectRT is a software package developed by Empirisoft designed for cognitive and perception tasks that require millisecond precision. DirectRT allows you to quickly create reaction time tasks (i.e., IAT, Implicit Association Test) that require precision timing, presenting sound, video, images and text with precision, and obtaining accurate high speed response input from keyboards, mice, joysticks, microphones and external hardware.
