Liberate your Lab
Did you sign up to study psychology or computer science? Well, we both know the answer… but do researchers really need to write code in four different languages to run an online experiment?
No, they don’t. However, that doesen’t mean that we have to return to the lab and run unreproduceable studies with 20 participiants (of whom half don’t show up, ugh.)
There’s a better way. Use the Gorilla experiment builder to set up your experiments with a simple graphical interface — it’s a drag and drop editor. Then gather more data from a more diverse participiant pool — online, in the lab or both. 500 participiants in a weekend? Easy as pie.
Focus on the science, we do the programming.
Gorilla allows us to efficiently collect large, diverse samples of participants that are often unfeasible to obtain in the lab. The task builder makes it possible to build pilot experiments within a short space of time, while also allowing the flexibility to implement more sophisticated psychophysical designs.

Would you use a hammer to screw in a nail? No? Okay. But why do researchers still use Google Forms, wonky survey software, unsecure self-coded experiments with vulnerable databases or eCommerce tools like Shopify to power their studies?
Because it’s easy? Because it’s “free”?
Let’s step up our game. Behaviourial research is a profession, not a hobby. And professionals use the right tool for the right job.
And those tools should be designed by people who understand your needs and can deliver excellent solutions. Gorilla is made for experimental psychologists by experimental psychologists and software engineers.
I love Gorilla as experiment builder software so much that we’re transitioning our in-lab studies to this too.

Gorilla rescued my dissertation! They have the best support team in the world. My experiment required too many customized functions, which is quite time-consuming. However, Gorilla helped me to achieve everything! In order to have a clear understanding of my demand, they arranged a Skype meeting with me and coached me step by step. They reviewed my codes and answered my questions with great patience. Honestly, they are like my second-supervisor. I deeply appreciate this wonderful platform and amazing team!

Programming Online Behavioral Experiments: How to Decide Where to Deploy Your Time for Best Effect
Programming has fundamentally changed many facets of life over the last 20 years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The field of behavioural science is no exception. Over the last ten years, many research software engineers have created products…
