Tasks of attention and impulse control in humans have excellent rodent counterparts. In particular, the 5-choice serial reaction time task (5CSRTT), which is the most widely used task measuring impulsive action and attention performance, has been instrumental in defining the underlying neuroanatomy, neurochemistry and genes pertaining to these cognitive functions.. In the 5CSRTT, mice are required to respond to a brief light stimulus in one of five response apertures. The number of premature responses before the stimulus light switches on is a measure of impulsivity. Omissions of responding, accuracy of responding and the intra-individual variability in response latencies are measures of attention.. ...
In. order to evaluate the effects of number and method of visual stimuli on simple reaction time and determine the proper number of trials, simple reaction time of the computerized test of NTOS (Neurobehavioral Test for Occupational Screening) was carried out on 240 medical students. The prominent difference was found between male and female on simple reaction time. Regarding the effect of number based on the parameters of measures and the purpose of test itself, 64 trials was considered as proper number. The mean reaction time was different according to the methods of visual stimuli, such as color and size( ...
In cognitive psychology, the Eriksen Flanker Task is a set of response inhibition tests used to assess the ability to suppress responses that are inappropriate in a particular context. The target is flanked by non-target stimuli which correspond either to the same directional response as the target (congruent flankers), to the opposite response (incongruent flankers), or to neither (neutral flankers). The task is named for Barbara. A. Eriksen & Charles W. Eriksen, who first published the task in 1974, and also for the flanker stimuli that surround the target. In the tests, a directional response (usually left or right) is assigned to a central target stimulus. Various forms of the task are used to measure information processing and selective attention. In an Eriksen Flanker Task there are three types of stimuli used: Congruent stimulus- Flankers call for the same response as the target, and may appear identical. Also referred to as the compatible condition. Incongruent stimulus- Flanker items ...
0008]Scientists define at least three types of reaction time including simple reaction time, recognition (or "Go/No Go") reaction time, and choice reaction time. Simple reaction time (SRT) is the reaction time obtained when the subject has to respond in a similar way to the same stimulus. In one example, one could obtain a simple reaction time by simply dropping an object at random intervals and asking the subject to catch it each time as quickly as possible. The time taken to catch the object from when it was dropped is the SRT. No decision-making is involved by the subject. Recognition reaction time (RRT) is the reaction time obtained when the subject recognizes the presence/absence of a stimulus at the time the object is dropped and takes the appropriate action as quickly as possible. So in one example, the subject will have been asked to catch the object that is dropped using a pinch grip if a light comes on, but to let it drop if the light does not come on. Here the stimulus to catch the ...
We develop a general theory of reaction time ({RT}) distributions in psychological experiments, deriving from the distribution of the quotient of two normal random variables, that of the task difficulty (top-down information), and that of the external evidence that becomes available to solve it (bottom-up information). The theory is capable of accounting for results from a variety of models of reaction time distributions and it makes novel predictions. It provides a unified account of known changes in the shape of the distributions depending on properties of the task and of the participants, and it predicts additional changes that should be observed. We show that a number of known properties of {RT} distributions are homogeneously accounted for by variations in the value of two easily interpretable parameters, the coefficients of variation of the two normal variables. The predictions of the theory are compared with those of many families of distributions that have been proposed to account for ...
This bibliography includes abstracts of 59 studies and review articles which are related to the effect of color coding on choice reaction time. As color displays become more widely used for information gathering and decision-making tasks, the effect of color coding on these tasks and their components will become increasingly important design considerations. Choice reaction time, the time required to make a binary choice, affects the total execution time of many decision-making and information gathering tasks, and seems to be a particularly relevant measure of effectiveness of color coding. This bibliography draws together much of the current literature, for reference by human factors researchers and systems designers. Two techniques lend themselves to measurement of choice reaction time the Sternberg paradigm and the Within-Task Subtractive Method.
Because of universal interest in this field and because many varying opinions are indicated, the problem is to find out, by some systematic inquiry, as to the nature of the relationship between motor reaction time and ability to play football at the high school level.
Assessment and intervention tools for occupational therapy practice must be evidence-based for appropriate use and include normative data with healthy adults. The overall goal of this research was to collect normative data on healthy adults visual reaction time when completing the full field 60 light task on a novel device, the Vision Coach. The specific research question in this study was to determine if a change in body positioning in regards to persons base of support will affect a persons reaction time. We hypothesized that reaction times would be significantly different in the positions of standing versus sitting. Reaction times from 121 healthy adults, ages ranging from 21-79 years, were collected. Participants completed eight trials total, four trials in a standing position, and four trials in a sitting position. There were no significant differences on the factors of body position, gender, height, and wingspan on the averaged visual reaction times. The implication is that clients can ...
MONDAY, Dec. 12, 2016 (HealthDay News) - For anesthesiologists, reaction time increases after a night call, with greater increases seen in correlation with reliance on avoidance as a coping mechanism, according to a study published online Nov. 30 in Pediatric Anesthesia.. Haleh Saadat, M.D., from the Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus, and colleagues examined the impact of sleep deprivation on reaction time in 23 anesthesiologists after an overnight call or regular working hours. Reaction time was assessed using the psychomotor vigilance test on a regular non-call day and after a 17-hour in-house call. Two anesthesiologists ended their participation for personal reasons.. The researchers found that, compared with a regular day, post-call psychomotor vigilance test mean reaction time decreased by an average of 31.2 ms. Coping Strategy Indicator scale scores indicated reliance on specific coping mechanisms, including problem solving, seeking social support, and avoidance. There was a ...
Familiar size is known to influence our perception of objects size and distance. In this study, we examined whether or not simple RTs (RTs) are also affected by prior knowledge of objects size. In a series of experiments, participants were asked to respond as quickly as possible to briefly presented images of familiar objects, equated for luminance and retinal size. The effects of familiar size and object animacy on RTs were investigated under natural (Experiment 1) and reduced (Experiment 2) viewing conditions. Restricted viewing conditions were introduced to manipulate the availability of depth cues. A systematic effect of familiar size on RTs was considered for progressively "shrunken" (Experiment 3) and "enlarged" (Experiment 4) objects on the screen with respect to their familiar size. Measures of perceived size were also taken by means of a manual estimation task (Experiment 5). Results showed an effect of animacy on simple RTs: Participants were faster to respond to images of animals ...
Two experiments examined phonological priming effects on reaction times, error rates, and event-related brain potential (ERP) measures in an auditory lexical decision task. In Experiment 1 related prime-target pairs rhymed, and in Experiment 2 they alliterated (i.e., shared the consonantal onset and vowel). Event-related potentials were recorded in a delayed response task. Reaction times and error rates were obtained both for the delayed and an immediate response task. The behavioral data of Experiment 1 provided evidence for phonological facilitation of word, but not of nonword decisions. The brain potentials were more negative to unrelated than to rhyming word-word pairs between 450 and 700 msec after target onset. This negative enhancement was not present for word-nonword pairs. Thus, the ERP results match the behavioral data. The behavioral data of Experiment 2 provided no evidence for phonological Facilitation. However, between 250 and 450 msec after target onset, i.e., considerably earlier ...
The latent period of visual sensor motor reaction depends, in part, on the sensory and integrative processes in the brain, but is also influenced by the rate of the muscle contraction. There is no clear evidence in the literature whether the rotational inertia of segments of limbs has any direct effect on the reaction time. The aim of our study was to identify this relationship . The study involved 566 right handed students aged 16-17 of both genders beginning their post puberty period. Reaction time was measured during experimental adduction of the forearm and hand, using a special rotating handle and lever connected to a computer that recorded the reaction time (~1 ms). Calculations of the rotational inertia were carried out using regression models by Zatsiorsky and other authors. Each gender group was divided into three subgroups: with high, medium and low values of rotational inertia. It was found that individuals with high values of rotational inertia of forearm and wrist demonstrated ...
Spatial congruence (Simon) effects on reaction time (RT) and response force (RF) were studied in two experiments requiring speeded choice responses to the color of a stimulus located irrelevantly to the left or right of fixation. In Experiment 1 with unimanual responses, both RT and incorrect-hand RF were sensitive to spatial congruence, and both showed larger Simon effects following a congruent trial than following an incongruent one. RT and incorrect-hand RF were dissociated in distributional (i.e., delta plot) analyses, however. As in previous studies, the Simon effect on RT was largest for the fastest responses and diminished as RT increased (i.e., decreasing delta plot). In contrast, Simon effects on RF did not decrease for slower responses; if anything, they increased slightly. In Experiment 2 participants made bimanual responses, allowing measurement of the spatial congruence effect for each trial. Responses were both faster and more forceful with the spatially congruent hand than with the

Initiating an eye movement towards a suddenly appearing visual target is faster when an accessory auditory stimulus occurs in close spatiotemporal vicinity. Such facilitation of saccadic reaction time (SRT) is well-documented, but the exact neural mechanisms underlying the crossmodal effect remain to be elucidated. From EEG/MEG studies it has been hypothesized that coupled oscillatory activity in primary sensory cortices regulates multisensory processing. Specifically, it is assumed that the phase of an ongoing neural oscillation is shifted due to the occurrence of a sensory stimulus so that, across trials, phase values become highly consistent (phase reset). If one can identify the phase an oscillation is reset to, it is possible to predict when temporal windows of high and low excitability will occur. However, in behavioral experiments the pre-stimulus phase will be different on successive repetitions of the experimental trial, and average performance over many trials will show no signs of the

This project is designed to develop an objective test to identify sleepiness in people with jobs where errors can be dangerous; for example, factory workers, pilots, or soldiers. My role in the project was to collect and analyze data from cognitive tests to search for factors associated with sleepiness. I tested for correlations between a variety of factors in several tests, including the PVT (Psychomotor Vigilance Task, testing reaction time) and the LOT (Line Orientation Test, testing the subjects spatial orientation skills). So far, I have considered: correlations between two metrics in the same test (ex: errors on a test vs mean reaction time on the same test), differences between subjects of different genders, differences based on cognitive test order, and whether there is a learning effect over the course of the study. The LOT seems shows inconsistent effects in different metrics over the course of the study, and requires further analyses. The PVT does not demonstrate any learning effect.
The integration of stimuli from the same or different modalities offers many benefits such as enhanced discrimination and accelerated reaction to objects. This thesis investigates the effects of stimulis spatial location on the redundancy gain (RG) obtained with cross-modal and within-modal stimulations. The RG is a decrease in reaction times (RT) when two or more stimuli are presented simultaneously rather than a single stimulation. The first study investigated cross-modal visuo-tactile integration in a single reaction time task and a choice reaction time task. Each unisensory stimulus was presented to either the left or right hemispace, and multisensory stimuli were presented in a unilateral (e.g. visual right/tactile right) or bilateral configuration (e.g. visual right/tactile left). The first task was a simple reaction time (SRT) paradigm where participants had to responded to all stimulations, irrespective of spatial position. Results showed that multisensory gain and coactivation were the ...
Previous studies showed that anodal transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS) applied to the primary motor cortex of the affected hemisphere (M1affected hemisphere) after subcortical stroke transiently improves performance of complex tasks that mimic activities of daily living (ADL). It is not known if relatively simpler motor tasks are similarly affected. Here we tested the effects of tDCS on pinch force (PF) and simple reaction time (RT) tasks in patients with chronic stroke in a double-blind cross-over Sham-controlled experimental design.

Errors in speeded decision tasks are associated with characteristic patterns of brain activity. In the scalp-recorded EEG, error processing is reflected in two components, the error-related negativity (ERN) and the error positivity (Pe). These components have been widely studied, but debate remains regarding the precise aspects of error processing they reflect. The present study investigated the relation between the ERN and the Pe using a novel version of the flanker task to allow a comparison between errors reflecting different causes-response conflict versus stimulus masking. The conflict and mask conditions were matched for overall behavioural performance but differed in underlying response dynamics, as indexed by response time distributions and measures of lateralised motor activity. ERN amplitude varied in relation to these differing response dynamics, being significantly larger in the conflict condition compared to the mask condition. Furthermore, differences in response dynamics between
The isomerization of limonene over the Ti-SBA-15 catalyst, which was prepared by the hydrothermal method, was studied. The main products of limonene isomerization were terpinolene, α-terpinene, γ-terpinene, and p-cymene-products with numerous applications. The amount of these products depended on reaction time, temperature, and catalyst content. These parameters changed in the following range: reaction time 30-1380 min, temperature 140-160 °C, and catalyst content 5-15 wt %. Finally, the most favorable conditions for the limonene isomerization process were established: a reaction time of 180 min, temperature of 160 °C, and amount of the catalyst 15 wt %. In order to obtain p-cymene (dehydroaromatization product), the most favorable conditions are similar but the reaction time should be 1380 min. The application of such conditions allowed us to obtain the highest amounts of the desired products in the shortest time.

For an open source JavaScript/HTML/CSS solution, check out jsPsych: http://www.jspsych.org. It can be used for reaction time measurement and interactive designs. An article describing the library was recently published in Behavior Research Methods.. A subsequent article investigated the properties of reaction time distributions collected with JavaScript compared to those collected with MATLAB and Psychtoolbox. The main result is that JavaScript was 10-40ms slower, but had equivalent variance across different experimental conditions and equal sensitivity to the experimental manipulation of set size in a visual search task.. There are several good answers to this related question about the validity and accuracy of response time measurements online. Many of those answers discuss findings that are relevant to JavaScript libraries like jsPsych.. de Leeuw, J. R.

Mean response accuracy was 92% (SD: 5%) with mean false positive rate 6% (SD: 4%). Mean reaction time was 1579 ms (SD: 235 ms). After excluding 3 frontal EOG clusters comprising 240 ICs, the major (90 ms) lambda response peak in the fixation-onset locked ERPs was dominated by 3 occipital IC clusters (100 ICs, 92% of the peak scalp map accounted for) (Figure 1). ERPs time locked to saccade onsets contained a pre-saccadic spike peaking at -12 ms. Three far frontal clusters dominated this spike (260 ICs, 95% variance accounted) (Figure 2 left). However, after removing all 5 EOG and far frontal clusters (314 ICs) and 1 temporal scalp muscle (EMG) cluster (26 ICs), 4 posterior clusters (114 ICs) contributed 82% of the remaining (positive-going) pre-saccadic spike (Figure 2 right).. ...
This study hypothesized that reaction times to monaural auditory stimuli are shorter with the ipsilateral hand than with the contralateral hand under binaural white noise stimulation, and that ipsi- and contralateral reactions do not differ in the absence of white noise. The relationship between the ipsilateral-contralateral reaction time difference and the frequency of the reaction signal was also determined. In experiment I, 10 male undergraduate students each performed 20 ipsilateral and 20 contralateral reactions to each of 6 signal frequencies (400, 800,1200,1600, 2000, 2400 cps) under binaural white noise stimulation. In experiment II, 10 male undergraduate students each performed 20 ipsi- and 20 contralateral reactions, at one stimulus frequency, under white noise on and white noise off conditions. The results support both hypotheses ( p | .001), and also indicate that signal frequency has a significant effect on contralateral reactions· ( p | .001) but not on ipsilateral reactions. Close

Visual Reaction Time Nervous responses to environmental stimuli are necessarily rapid events, taking a small fraction of a second to be completed. The stages in such a response involve: (1) transduction of the environmental stimulus into a nervous impulse (rods and cones) (2) processing in the neurons of the retina (bipolar and ganglion cells) (3)…
Reaction time expert Marc Green says that our "cognitive load" is partially to blame for slow reaction time when driving. According to his studies, drivers dont break as quickly when they split their focus between driving and something else. Perhaps they are distracted by something else on the road or perhaps theyre preoccupied with other thoughts. Green says that navigation devices and cell phones also add to drivers cognitive load. He says, "There is no doubt that both cause delays in reaction times, with estimates ranging from 0.3 to as high a second or more, depending on the circumstances." Try limiting your phone use and minimizing other distractions while driving to improve your driving reaction time.. ...

The fallacy of affirming the consequent is connected with a tendency to seek evidence that confirms a hypothesis. Many scientists conduct their experiments under the assumption that their experimental paradigm is a legitimate extension of their hypothesis, and thus their results are used to confirm their beliefs. As an example, imagine a hypothesis that states that patients with bipolar disorder have reduced cognitive processing speed, and we do a reaction time test to measure this. Thus, a fallacious line of reasoning would be: if bipolar patients have reduced cognitive processing speed, then we will observe slower reaction time on a test. We observe a slower reaction time, and therefore bipolar patients have reduced cognitive processing speed. This would be affirming the consequent, because the observed outcome is assumed to be the result of the mechanism outlined in the hypothesis, but we cannot with certainty say that this is true. The results certainly suggests this possibility, and it may ...

Without a way to measure it and some hard data its pointless to try argue this.. , average human reaction time appears to be around 200 to 250 milliseconds. Reaction time tests are really contrived and its always a laughing point when theyre quoted in irrelevant context: We usually get cues that allow to anticipate events from distance. Especially in gaming and musical context. Ive seen how the 200-500 ms reaction time figures often quoted have been deviced and what it measures is the scenario that you are blind and deaf and suddenly your blindless is gone and you react to that singular and sudden event.. I already use a CRT and I can put it to 200 hz should I wish to, but that doesnt really tell anything about latencies. Reacting to game events is conceptually similar to a feedback loop in electronics, except that added latency increases the loop lenght while ability to anticipate (look-ahead) decreases it. In a game like TrackMania or many arcade style games, the intensity and ...
Reaction time is everything. Whether youre a mom making quick family decisions, a student looking to ace the next exam, or a busy professional, reaction time and mental aptitude determine whether you succeed or fail. One slight weakness, things can go bad fast, as was the case in the above photo.

In recent years, interest in the use of computerized neuropsychological (NP) assessment measures has increased. However, there are limited data regarding how performance on these measures relates to performance on more traditional, clinical instruments. In the present study, 82 HIV+ men, who were all believed on clinical grounds to have neurobehavioral impairment, completed a traditional NP battery (TNB) and the California Computerized Assessment Package (CalCAP, a collection of computerized reaction time tests). Summary scores based on a TNB, as well as those based on the CalCAP, demonstrated significant associations with both degree of immunosuppression (CD4 count) and detectable viral load in cerebrospinal fluid, but not with detectable viral load in plasma. Established norms on the TNB and CalCAP batteries resulted in classifying 57% and 49% of the HIV+ sample as impaired, respectively. When using the TNB as the "gold standard," impairment classifications based on CalCAP summary scores ...
The present paper introduces the prototype of a complex reaction time tester instrument. The novelty of the instrument is that the reaction time can be measured in various combinations of sensory organs and reaction movements. The reaction time is defined as the time duration in between the initial time instant of the stimulus of the sensory organs (input signal) and the onset of the response that is typically indicated by a button or a pedal. Another novelty is that the instrument is free of any uncertain time delay, which is not the case for several instruments available ...

We found that for the no-glare situation, RT increases with decreasing contrast and increasing spatial frequency, which agrees with previous findings. When data are plotted as a function of the inverse of contrast, RT varies linearly, with k-the RT-contrast factor of Pierons law-representing the slope of the lines. The effect of glare on RT is an increase in the slope of these lines. This effect is different for each spatial frequency, which cannot be accounted for in the classic approach considering that glare can be replaced by a single veiling luminance. We show that the effect of glare on RT must be modeled by an equivalent glare luminance that depends on spatial frequency.. © 2008 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...

This video recorded at the IEEE Workshop on Advanced NeuroTechnologies featured Paul Sajda, PhD, Columbia University. Advances in neural signal and image acquisition as well as in multivariate signal processing and machine learning are enabling a richer and more rigorous understanding of the neural basis of human decision-making. Decision-making is essentially characterized behaviorally by the variability of the decision across individual trials—e.g., error and response time distributions. To infer the neural processes that govern decision-making requires identifying neural correlates of such trial-to-trial behavioral variability. In this talk Sajda discusses how his team is using simultaneously acquired electroencephalograpy (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to infer the spatiotemporal dynamics that underlie the formation and execution of rapid perceptual decisions. Focus is on the different approaches developed to couple the trial-to-trial variability in the EEG and

The performances of 12 patients with Parkinsons disease (PD), 16 with Huntingtons disease (HD), and young and old healthy controls were assessed on a number of tests of verbal and nonverbal declarative memory, on a test of nonmotor conditional associative learning (words and colors), and on a number of reaction time (RT) tasks. The RT tasks consisted of cued simple and choice reactions. The relationship between the precue and the imperative stimulus in the S1-S2 paradigm was nonarbitrary in the first series and arbitrary in the second series. The series with arbitrary S1-S2 associations was repeated across two successive blocks of trials. The rationale of the study was to investigate the function of the basal ganglia "complex loop," and it was postulated that HD patients would show greater deficits because of greater involvement of the caudate nucleus. The patients with HD had the slowest RTs. Across the two blocks with arbitrary S1-S2 associations, the patients with HD but not PD nevertheless ...
A distinct dimension of cognitive control is the ability to anticipate changes and prepare for behavioral adjustment. In a previous work, we combined computational modeling and fMRI of a stop signal task to characterize the neural processes linking conflict anticipation, an estimate of the likelihood of an upcoming stop signal or p(Stop) and go trial reaction time (GoRT). An increase in p(Stop) predicted a prolonged GoRT. We showed that activity to conflict anticipation in the presupplementary motor area (pre-SMA) Granger caused activity in the posterior pre-SMA, and bilateral anterior insula during go response slowing (Hu et al., 2015). Along with other studies, the latter work characterized the neural circuits for proactive control (Jaffard et al., 2008; Jahfari et al., 2010; Grinband et al., 2011; Criaud et al., 2012; Zandbelt et al., 2013; van Belle et al., 2014; Behan et al., 2015).. Individuals vary in impulsivity, which may conduce to undesirable consequences (Grant and Chamberlain, 2014; ...

Choice reaction time experiment data involves two types of input and output. Such data involves a latent component since not all input events can be matched to the output process, and it is not known which input events elicit an output event. To study response bias we introduce a two-response threshold model for data from a point process version of the experiment. The two threshold estimates allow us to make inferences regarding a bias toward one response type, regardless of any differences between the two stimulus rates. This model also enables inferences regarding inhibition/facilitation effects of the flashes on the responses. This approach is applied to experimental data with nine different flash rates ...

In this study I investigated whether the strength in the manual response for emotional and neutral stimulus search arrays can explain some of the difference in reaction times (RT:s) for emotional stimuli, or not. Earlier, perceptual, cognitive and attentional processes has mostly been used to explain the variance in RT:s. Thirtythree individuals were asked to, as fast as possible, detect a target picture among distractor pictures in 3 rows x 4 columns arranged search arrays. The pictures were categorized in fear relevant animals (snake, spider) and neutral animals (cat). The results showed, more correct responses for cat target. No correlation between strength and fear relevant target picture was found. This can partly be explained by that RT:s and force (Newton) was measured at different time sets with different buttons. The results show that the use of different response buttons results in a difference in the heartbeat frequency.. ...
Im currently in the market for the most suitable software for a series of reaction time experiments. I need millisecond precision. When you say, Uses Microsoft?s DirectX to gain the fastest access possible to input events from the keyboard, mouse, joystick and soundcard. does that mean DirectRT can circumvent the inherent ~10-30ms latency associated with keyboards? Or that is simply achieves the highest precision apart from these hardware events? Thank you for any assistance. Trey
This thesis presents two proposals for improving network layer reaction times and an investigation into the consequences of using IPv4 options. The first proposal, the Selective TRuncating Internetworking Protocol (STRIP), is an augmentation of the IP networking layer. The idea behind STRIP is to expose information related to layered media at the networking layer. Media streams that are divided into different layers (where one layer provides the most basic quality and additional layers provide incremental enhancements to the quality of the media) are placed in the same networking layer protocol data unit (PDU) for transport across the network. Each layer in the PDU is implicitly assigned a priority level, indicating its importance to the media stream. Intermediate routers, on the path of the media stream, can use the exposed layering information to drop parts of the PDU (thereby dropping layers) in response to short term congestion, instead of having to discard an entire packet. By enabling ...

In the video above, I started with the formula shown below and to the left. The d in the formula stands for the distance the ruler falls, the g stands for the acceleration due to gravity, and the t stands for reaction time. But where did the formula actually come from? Hint: The distance in the formula is the same thing as the magnitude of displacement because we are talking about a ruler which is moving in one direction ...

While 1,4-reduction usually predominates in the reduction of α,β-unsaturated ketones with NaBH4 alone, selective 1,2-reduction is possible using CeCl3-7H2O as an additive. Luche reduction can be used for a wide range of compounds and reaction times are also short (3-5 min). Simple procedure is another plus for this reaction. DIBAL is used for the same purpose but it requires lower temperature.. ...

you are right, there is no time information on the key responses in the statistics module. It would be relatively easy to implement this using the sources and I put this on the wishlist. In the meantime it might be a workaround that you look at the database module at the trial events table. There is a column called event time with the time until this response (e.g. key press) happened counted from the beginning of the trial. You can export this table also ...

You will need to generate a time base for measuring reaction times. Most people have a reaction time in the range of 100 mSec to 200 mSec, but this can be quite variable, up to several hundred mSec. If you use the 0.5 mSec timebase from lab 1, you will have enough time resolution, but you will need a 16 bit interrupt counter. Make sure that the switches and LEDs are connected as they were in Lab 1. When in doubt, ask an instructor. Remember that a switch which is pushed reads back a logic zero. To read, for example, switch6 use ...
Changing the source and intensity of the auditory signal to six trained cats responding to meaningful auditory stimuli permits exogenous and endogenous processes in the auditory evoked potential to be separated. For short-latency exogenous processes, latency and amplitude depend on the parameters of the physical stimulus. However, the amplitude and shape of longer-latency endogenous processes are essentially independent of the location and intensity of the signal source and seem to be invariant concomitants of the significance of the signal. ...
Why brought it up in here is that two weeks ago in time trials we came up with a off the wall red light, a .430. It is possible to pull the front wheels out of the stage light. Because this run also gave us a slower 60 time, but the car seemed to hook really hard. Also this is after I was getting on him about staging as shallow as he could possibly get. And he is running a pretty small front tire which may have contributed to it. It only occured once and never changed the delay box at all. And he is still cutting .510-.520 lights during the day and .498-.510 in the dark. Without adding anything to the box. So as night nears we are going to add 10 to the box ...
