Stroop, Posted April 2nd, 2012 #1
For the stroop test that I downloaded from the forum participants are asked to use their keyboard to record their answers, specifically,

z: Red
x: green
c: blue
v: brown
b: purple

Is it possible to use the programming tools to make the response point and click? For example

Red Green Blue Brown Purple

would be below the target word and the participant could point and click on the color they wanted verus pressing z,x,c,v or b.

This is possible within SuperLab. I would suggest having the colors names that the participant is to click on being in one picture file. Within the picture file, make the words spaced out in such a way that makes it easier for you to define the areas.

  • Create an event with stimulus type Picture File

  • Import the picture file that was created with the color names

  • To create on-screen responses, go to the Experiment menu and then Participant Input

  • Check Mouse or Touch Screen as an input device

  • The Participant Input Editor appears

  • Click on the New button to create a response

  • The Mouse Response Editor appears

  • Click on the third option that reads, "Specific area found at location (in pixels)"

  • Define the areas on screen where the participant will be clicking either Red, Green, Blue, Brown or Purple

  • After defining the five areas, one for each color word, click Ok to exit

  • In the Participant Input dialog, there is a Preview button that will display in a blue border the areas that have defined responses

  • Go back to the picture event. In the Event Editor, under the Stimulus tab, click the Preview button. This will illustrate the five areas that were defined under Participant Input
