We will propor here a new multivariate link function, called skew-probit, to deal with longitudinal binary data. The main goal is to extend some results in the literature gave for multivariate logist and probit link, under Bayesian approach and also to develop efficient MCMC algorithms. Another interest is to work in variable selection under this binary regression model.
