Why programming?

Programming is a skill that all psychology students should learn. I can think of so many reasons on why, including automating boring stuff, and practicing problem solving skills through learning to code and programming.  In this post I will focus on two more immediate ways that may be relevant for a Psychology student, particularly during data collection and data analysis. For a more elaborated discussion on the topic read the post on my personal blog: Every Psychologist Should Learn Programming.

Here is what we will do in this post:

  • Basic Python by example (i.e., a t-test for paired samples)
  • Program a Flanker task using the Python library Expyriment
  • Visualise and analyse data

Before going into how to use Python programming in Psychology I will briefly discuss why programming may be good for data collection and analysis.

Data collection

The data collection phase of Psychological research has largely been computerised. Thus, many of the methods and tasks used to collect data are created using software. Many of these tools offer graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that may at many times cover your needs. For instance, E-prime offers a GUI which enables you to, basically, drag and drop “objects” onto a timeline to create your experiment. However, in many tasks you may need to write some customised code on top of your built experiment. For instance, quasi-randomisation may be hard to implement in the GUI without some coding (i.e., by creating CSV-files with trial order and such). At some point in your study of the human mind you will probably need to write code before collecting data.

Data collection

Data Analysis

Most programming languages can of course offer both graphical and statistical analysis of data. For instance, R statistical programming environment has recently gained more and more popularity in Psychology as well as in other disciplines. In other fields Python is also gaining popularity when it comes to analysing and visualisation of data. MATLAB has for many years also been used for quantitative methods in Psychology and cognitive science (e.g., for Psychophysical analysis, cognitive modelling, and general statistics).  Python offers extensive support for both Web scraping and the analysis of scraped data.
