WMC Battery for Matlab

Lewandowsky, S., Oberauer, K., Yang, L.-X., & Ecker, U. K. H. (2010). A working memory test battery for MatLab. Behavior Research Methods, 42, 571-585.


The Lewandowsky et al. WMC Battery for MatLab can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.

Note that you must have a functioning MatLab installation Version 7.5 (R2007b) or later and note that the free Psychophysics Toolbox (Version 2.54, 3.0.8 or 3.0.9) must also have been installed and tested before you can use the WMC Battery.
Please NOTE: Any version of Psychtoolbox later than 3.0.8 or 3.0.9 does not appear to be compatible with the WCM battery. Users running later version can restore earlier versions from the MATLAB command line by use of the command:

DownloadLegacyPsychtoolbox('C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2012b\toolbox', [], [], 'Psychtoolbox-3.0.8')

(where the path name may require adjustment depending on where MATLAB is installed).

V.1.01(fully operational version, uploaded 25/11/09)

After clicking on the above link, save the single file (a zipped folder called WMCBattery.zip) onto your disk, and then unzip the folder into a directory that can be accessed by MatLab.
Follow the instructions in the paper from then on to run the WMC Battery.

After clicking on the 'MatLab code' link above, save the single file (a zipped folder called PBR2011-model.zip) onto your disk, and then unzip the folder into a directory that can be accessed by MatLab.
Note that you must have a functioning MatLab installation Version 7.5 (R2007b) or later and note that the free Psychophysics Toolbox (Version 2.54) must also have been installed before you can use the code.
