I am attempting to emulate an experiment known as the MT-IRAP.
(here’s the link to the paper that documented its creation, if needed: http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/EJ913515.pdf )
Essentially, it is an experiment where participants must make one of two relational assessments (‘similar’ or ‘opposite’, via a key press for each) between two stimuli: a label stimulus (dichotomous; one of two possibilities e.g. ‘good’ or ‘bad’) and a target stimulus (one of six possibilities e.g. three positive words and three negative words), as well as a cue stimulus, indicating to the participant whether to lie or tell the truth.
What I am trying to do on Superlab is have it so that a label stimulus (in my case one of two pictures), target stimulus (one of six words) and a cue stimulus (either ‘lie’ or ‘truth’) all appear on screen at the same time, to which the participant will respond by pressing one of two keys (‘l’ or ‘a’). I would also need it organised so that the order in which each of these three classes of stimuli are presented is randomized, and that every possible combination occurs.
I have attached my very poor attempt at doing this, and was hoping someone could advise on how to improve on my current effort, so that it achieves my goal.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I realize that this is a lot to take in, and that the experimental design is rather complicated. Please let me know if you require any more info in order to understand and help me.
