I was wondering if any one can comment on whether or not it is feasible to run MonkeyLogic on a standalone laptop using the keyboard for the input "push button" keys and the laptop monitor as the display? That way everything would be contained within one computer without all the associated hardware. This is purely for behavioral tasks without recording. I am trying to use it outside of a rig type setting where we only want to check subject's choices and record them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

MonkeyLogic isn't set-up to precisely time-stamp keyboard events (not sure if that's even possible at the 1ms time-scale).  One option would be to use a USB DAQ device connecting the laptop to a button-box, though those tend to have such poor temporal precision that the keyboard is likely to be no worse; however, at least the DAQ device is currently supported.  Assessing whether keyboard inputs could be used with reasonable temporal precision is worth looking into at some point, but no concrete plans are in-place for that currently.

For this application, we are only interested in the subject's response (they only have 2 choices), not the reaction time, etc. so high temporal precision isn't needed. We only need to know what someone chooses as their response for each trial. Is it possible to use the Hotkey function to assign one keyboard key a particular event code designating one of the choices and another keyboard key gets the other event code? Thank you.
