I am trying to set up a simple recognition memory experiment. The basic structure is:
- target name, presented as text
- distractor task, simple mental arithmetic, presented as text (e.g., 73 + 36 = ?) with a string input response box.
- test list of 4-5 words (containing the target word plus similar foils), with correct name selected by mouse click
I set up a very crude first attempt at this, but am having trouble. The text input box appears, but won’t accept any input. And I don’t yet fully understand how the mouse click region for a correct or incorrect response is defined (I chose the “automatic” option, but it’s not clear to me how this option works, how big a region is defined around the text input, etc.).
I’m attaching this crude first attempt.
Is there a recog memory experiment like this one in the classic experiments? Any other help welcomed. Thanks in advance.
