a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
a test in which participants must not only memorize items, but must perform an additional cognitive task (e.g. "2 + 2 = 5; A" in which the equation must be evaluated for whether it is true and the letter following must be memorized)

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

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).
