I’ve created an experiment where participants are presented with a cue, which is paired with a thermal stimulus delivered from an external stimulator. After my participants receive the thermal stimulus they are prompted to answer a series of questions relating to how they experienced the thermal stimulation.
When my participants do not respond, the timing between everything is perfect. However, when they respond, there is a delay of about half a second before the next event in my experiment, which then increases the longer the experiment runs.
I understand that there will be a delay as SuperLab records and saves the responses of my participants, but shouldn’t this delay be consistent throughout the experiment? Is there an easy way to fix the timing of my events?
Any and all advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated.
