a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
Participants see ten boxes at the top of a screen, each of which is red or blue in some ratio. Under one of these boxes is a token, and participants must guess whether the token is under red or blue. On a gambling trial, participants can select some proportion of their allotted points to bet on their judgement.

CONTRASTS

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

INDICATORS

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).

REVISION 2

Definition contributed by MLewis about five years ago:"On each trial, the participant is presented with a row of ten boxes across the top of the screen, some of which are red and some of which are blue. At the bottom of the screen are rectangles containing the words ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’. The participant must guess whether a yellow token is hidden in a red box or a blue box. In the gambling stages, participants start with a number of points and can select a proportion of these points, displayed in either rising or falling order, to gamble on their confidence in this judgement. The participant must try to accumulate as many points as possible." http://www.cantab.com/cantab-tests-cambridge-gambling-task.asp

REVISION 1

Definition contributed by TSchonberg about seven years ago:A behavioral task intended to measure risky decision making by subjects. A token is hidden under one of six boxes that are each one of two colors.Different trials have different ratios between box colors(3:3,4:2,5:1).On each trial,participants choose a color on which to bet.The color with the higher probability (more boxes) is associated with lower potential gains and lower potential losses of points than is the color with lower probability.
