a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
subjects focus on a fixation cross while a dot-shaped cue appears elsewhere on the screen; after this the fixation cross is replaced by several geometric shapes, one of which the participant must respond to, and when the fixation cross appears again the participant must indicate where the cue had appeared.

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).
