a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
A participant must come to consensus with a set of other participants on a choice between two items. If consensus is reached, the item is obtained and the next block begins. If consensus is not reached, the next trial contains the same choice. If consensus is not reached by the end of the block, no item is gained. The experiment uses actual people, and the control condition uses has th participant interacting with a computer algorithm. Full details:

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


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.

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).
