Implementation #1 The script is basically an adapation (or hack) of a Python program created by Titus Von der Malsburg (originally for the operation span task). Py-RAN-Task can be used for testing the Rapid Automatized Naming task on a computer with Python (and tkSnack for recording the audio).
EXTERNAL DATASETS for Naming tasks
No external datasets have been added.
No conditions have yet been associated.

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).
