About the author

I am a psychologist/neuroscientist living and working in London.  I mostly do research using fMRI, on various topics including vision, motor functions, time perception and others. Recently I’m working on pain and getting into some pharmacological-fMRI, which is quite exciting.

Those who really have a burning desire to know who I am and what I do should go here and/or here, but be warned, it’s pretty dull. If you’ve somehow come across this blog while looking for information on my band, our facebook page is here. We rock, by the way. ;o)

Oh go on then, follow me on twitter as well, if you must: @m_wall.

  1. I´ve just found this web.
    Absolutely Great!!!!

  2. Hello,

    My name is Ryan Rivera and I have been reading your website for a while now. Yesterday, I came across this article – https://computingforpsychologists.wordpress.com/2012/01/05/the-ipad-and-cognitive-behaviour-therapy-cbt-for-social-anxiety/ and it really caught my attention because it is related to my area of expertise.

    My area is helping folks with anxiety, stress, panic attacks and related issues (7+ years in the field). So it got me wondering – perhaps you’d be interested in an expanded guest article on the same, or a similar topic? I think I could provide some additional tips. Or perhaps I could cover a new topic altogether? I would be glad to contribute.

    My work has been featured in local radio and TV shows, so I’m sure I can craft something that will work for you and your website. You can always turn it down – no issues. It’d be exclusive to you, around 650 words, but I can make it longer or shorter if you wish. I will also share the story with my 900+ subscribers once published.

    Please let me know if you would be interested.

    Kind regards,
    Ryan Rivera

    P.S. I can also send you some links to previously published articles – just let me know if you’d like to see them first.

    • Dear Ryan,

      Many thanks for your comment, and I’m glad you find my blog of interest. Also, many thanks for your offer of writing something as well – that’s very kind of you. I’ve looked at a few of the articles on your own website (http://www.calmclinic.com/all-articles) too.

      I’m keen to keep this blog quite tightly focussed on the use of technology (computing platforms, software, programming, etc.) in psychology research and education. The article on the iPad you mentioned was something of an aside, as it dealt with clinical practice – really not my area at all. If you wanted to write something quite technically-focussed about your clinical practice I would be happy to post it or link to it, but it would need to fit quite well within the scope of my blog. Let me know if you would like to write something along these lines and we can discuss a topic or something. Drop me a line at mbwall[ at ]gmail[ dot ]com.



  3. It’s great to read a blog devoted to linking computing and psychology. As someone who likes to consume content using RSS feeds, my small vote would be to not truncate your RSS feed. I realise that it is nice to see the traffic on the main site and that it may reduce the risk of others reusing your content without permission, but it does make following the RSS feed less user friendly.

  4. Thanks Dear Matt!your web is awsome.Its related to my Psychology Project. Wish u all the best Gentleman.

  5. Hello

    I was wondering if you could help me find FOSS psychology test scoring software? Or perhaps point me into the right direction?

    I work at a psychological practice and we are currently working with dos-based software from the 80’s, and it’s getting harder and harder to keep things running.

    I hope you understand what I am looking for; it is the software where you can input the results from standard psychology diagnosis questions and it then calculates the corresponding results based on statistical formulas
    Basically counting up according to some conditions.

    But while I googled for some time I could not find any alternatives.
    But it lead me to your article that lists a of Psychololy software,
    ( https://computingforpsychologists.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/open-source-software-for-psychology-and-neuroscience/ )

    So I was hoping you would be able to help me.
    (From what I understood of the software you listed it is not suited for my purpose.)

    It would be niceof it is FOSS software, so I could translate it and add templates for other tests.

    I can not actually program, but i’ve made some scoring templates in Excel so if the software supports templates then it should hopefully not be too hard.

    Right now the closed thing I am looking at (other then those excel templates) are Joomla online qestionaires. Actually, if you would know an open-source (back-end) edition of those online psychology questionairs it would probably help me.

    Thanks in advance
