synatcting and semantic fMRI task paradigm
1. A sentence with complex syntactic structure
2. A sentence with simple syntactic structure
3. A list of words
4. A sentence of jabberwocky
5. A list of pseudo-words (from the same distribution as jabberwocky)
6. Consonant strings
A probe is then presented and the subject has to respond whether it was one of 10 items of the previously presented sequence.
Each trial lasts 10 seconds.
Contrasts between these conditions can be used to probe syntactic-specific or semantic-specific responses.

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.
You must specify conditions before you can define contrasts.
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).
