The Pittsburg Stress Battery is a standardized means of evaluating cardiovascular reactions as a response to acute stressors which have been linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. The original protocols vary but normally consisted of three tasks designed to maximize various psychological demands: a visual short term memory task (scanning), an accuracy evaluation (targeting), and a cognitive motor/reflex task (tracking).

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.


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).
