a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
A decision making task designed to test how individuals can use different criteria to classify perceptual stimuli. In the criteria with line stimuli version of the task, participants are asked to decide if lines are "big" or "small" compared to a criterion line that can differ in size. At the beginning of each block of trials, they are shown which criterion line to use for their decisions. In the criteria with dot stimuli version of the task, participants are asked to decide if a matrix of dots is "big" or "small" compared to a matrix of dots that can differ in size. At the beginning of each block of trials, they are shown which criterion matrix of dots to use for their decisions.

CONDITIONS

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
response time
accuracy

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).
