I apologise if this has already been covered previously, but I tried to do a search in the forum and could not find the solution to my problem.
The problem is rather trivial, I am designing an experiment where each trial should consist of a cue (a text event with a plus sign serving as a fixation point), a video segment, a text that reminds the participant of the response options (eg. press 1 for yes, press 2 for no), then finally an inter-stimulus interval followed the next trial. I’ve created the events in this order; however, the cue event insists on showing up both before and after the video segment, and then again after the response options event. I’ve tried putting it before the video event, and even after the ISI event, but it still keeps popping up time and time again. Perhaps the problem is related to the fact that I use a stimulus list, rather than creating a separate trial for every single video. Yet, I really don’t want to create dozens of separate trials.
My question then: How do I force events to appear in the order I put them in the list, and avoid repeated presentations of one (text) event within a trial?
