I need to provide a break to subjects half way through a block. After the break, a fixation should appear and then the second half of the trials will be presented.
Since the fixation is specific to the lead in to the second half of trials, I don’t think I can use the ‘extra actions’ tab because this will just resume the trials without the lead in fixation.
So I’ve tried using the block rules tab, setting a rule so that if ‘number of trials in block’ = X, then present event ‘break’
After I did this I took a second look at the manual, and this seems to be essentially the same as the older method of using macros to provide a break instead of a rule.
So far, the script does not abide by this rule, instead presenting the break event at the very end.
I’ve attached a sample script that represents what I want to do in the actual script. Any help would be appreciated.
