In this OpenSesame tutorial we will learn how to use images as stimuli and how to load the trials; including filenames, correct responses, and conditions from a pre-generated CSV file. To follow this tutorial you don’t need to know Python programming. However, we are going to generate the CSV file using a short Python script. […]

Therefore, one step in that direction is to learn a new programming language next year (i.e., 2016). I would like to learn a relatively new language and it should not […]

Sustained Attention Task in PsychoPy

I have created a PsychoPy script for the Sustained Attention to Response Task (SART) and a Vigilance Task. Both of the tasks are very similar. In SART the task is to press the key space as fast and accurate as possible on all targets (digits 1, 2, 4–9) except for one (digit 3). In the […]

What is the Cross-modal oddball paradigm?

My current research focus on how attention can be captured by deviating stimuli. I will briefly describe the paradigm I have used – the cross-modal oddball task. Before I go into the cross-modal oddball task I will describe the auditory oddball task. In the oddball paradigm the subjects are exposed to a repetitive stream of […]
