a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
The participant selects a target in the presence of one or more distractors; the negative priming arises between consecutive trials, in which the participant must respond to a target on the current trial that had appeared as a distractor on the previous trial.

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).
