I have submitted a manuscript on Stroop interference (e.g. BLUE written in green colour) to a journal and one of the reviewers was surprised about the long reaction time latencies I found. The experiment involved an old Superlab program which as an aside I am very happy with. Actually, I now realize that I do not have a clue whether Superlab (a) reports reaction times from the onset or the offset of a target and (b) which information I should present in a paper. Example: Let’s say I have a target displayed for 500ms and Superlab reveals mean reaction times of 800ms. Does this mean the real RT is 300 or 800 ms from offset of the target and should I present RT including stimulus duration.
I would be happy for a reply.
Kind regards, Steffen
