a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
This is a modified Stroop task (Gauthier et al., 2012) that consists of two 60- second blocks each of control and Stroop conditions, interspersed with 60-second rest blocks. In total, there are 4 task and 5 resting blocks, for a total acquisition length of 9 minutes. During task blocks, control or Stroop events always lasts 2.5 seconds, preceded by 1.5 seconds with a fixation cross to maintain a constant gaze direction. For full details, see

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.

response time

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).
