a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
The participant is given verbal instructions such as "make a fist" or "point to the ceiling". Execution of the command is scored as correct. The commands may be simple or complex (for example having multiple steps).

IMPLEMENTATIONS of following commands
Implementation #1 Following commands is part of the ADAScog. Instructions are summarised as follows: "Receptive speech is assessed also on the patient’s ability to carry out one- to five-step commands. 1. Make a fist. 2. Point to the ceiling, then to the floor. 3. Put the pencil on top of the card, then put it back. 4. Put the watch on the other side of the pencil and turn over the card. 5. Tap each shoulder twice with two fingers, keeping your eyes shut."
EXTERNAL DATASETS for following commands

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.


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).
