a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
A measure of emotion recognition. Participants are shown a series of 40 faces, one at a time, and asked to determine what emotion the face is showing for each trial. There are 5 answer choices: Happy, Sad, Angry, Scared and No Feeling. Participants respond to each trial by clicking word describing the emotion each faces expresses using the mouse. There are 4 female faces for each emotion (4 x 5 = 20 and 4 male faces for each emotion (4 x 5 = 20 . The children's version (k-ER40 uses the same stimuli as the adult version, but some of the emotion prompts are simplified: Anger => Angry, Fear=>Scared, No Emotion=>No Feeling. There are two forms of the children’s version: the k-er40-a and k-er40-b.

Synonyms: ER40, Children's ER40)

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

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.

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).
