a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
Subjects are presented with three objects that differ along three dimensions (color, shape, texture). At any trial, the relevant dimension gives a higher probability of reward than the other two. This dimension may shift from trial to trial.

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.

CONTRASTS
No contrasts have yet been associated.


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
No indicators have yet been associated.


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).
