Broad Application Support

A number of software packages know how to communicate directly with the Lumina controller and take advantage of its features:








The commands that the Lumina controller accepts are public. Cedrus publishes and maintains Python and C++ code libraries.

Accuracy By Design

The built-in timer in the Lumina controller measures with precision when the participant presses (or releases) a key, then sends time-stamped information to the computer.

Just as important, the timer can be reset in one of three ways: via a command sent over USB, when the light sensor detects the onset of a visual stimulus, or via an external device.
