Gorilla: A Lab­vanced Alternative

While Lab­vanced pro­vides a plat­form for cre­at­ing online studies, it may not cater to all the diverse needs of behav­iour­al researchers. It requires a steeper learn­ing curve, par­tic­u­lar­ly for those not com­fort­able with a high level of programming.

Gorilla pro­vides a user-friend­ly, all-in-one plat­form for online behav­iour­al research, with tools for surveys, reac­tion time tasks, mul­ti­play­er tasks, and more. It’s designed to be acces­si­ble to researchers of all skill levels, without needing a back­ground in coding.

Gorilla not only exceeds the capa­bil­i­ties of Lab­vanced but also offers an easy-to-use plat­form, making the design and exe­cu­tion of behav­iour­al exper­i­ments a smooth process. Plus, with its robust support team and regular live webi­na­rs, Gorilla ensures a seam­less research expe­ri­ence for all.
