Below are links to stimulus sets that DML members have sourced and edited in the past.

Insect Stimuli

Stimulus sourcers & editors: Johannes Schultz-Coulon & Kiera Ludlow

This stimulus set includes multi-viewpoint images (dorsal & ventral) of insects belonging to 4 different insect orders. Stimuli included in this set were vetted by an Entomologist at the University of Victoria to ensure sufficient identifying features were present for a fair identification to the family-level. Within the stimulus folder is a supporting document detailing file naming protocol and the insect families and orders included in the set.

Warbler Stimuli

Stimulus sourcer & editor: Anna Lawrance

This stimulus set includes profile view images of 4 different species of Warbler birds, specifically Cape May, Magnolia, Prairie, and Townsend. Stimuli included in this set were standardized to reduce interstimulus perceptual variance. These stimuli have previously been used for perceptual training and PsiZ studies. Within the stimulus folder is a supporting document detailing file naming protocol and the species included in the set.

When possible, the Different Minds Lab aims to make their approach to conducting research fully open-source. To do so, we put in special effort to pre-register our experiment materials and hypotheses on the Open Science Framework prior to analysing our data.

We also maintain dedicated repositories on GitHub housing both our experiment and analysis scripts. These repositories serve as archives, preserving our experiments for public access and providing resources for both current and past lab members. Our GitHub presence consists of two primary parent repositories: one exclusively dedicated to experimental scripts – the tools we employ to conduct our research – and the other focused on analysis scripts, all the way from data wrangling to visualization. Please note that we do not post our participant data to GitHub. If we have received approval to make participant data publicly available, it can be found on the Open Science Framework.

We hold a standard in the lab of releasing well-documented scripts, which help members within the lab, but also colleagues from outside our lab. Given this, within each experiment’s submodule, you will find markdown files detailing what is included in the submodule as well as more information on the experiment.
