The Go/No-Go Tests is used to measure a participant's capacity for sustained attention and response control.
This experiment presents a series of trials where participants are instructed to click the circle once when two beeps are heard and click the circle twice when one beep is heard. The instructions then change and require the participant to click the circle twice when one beep is heard and do nothing when two beeps are heard. Responses are made with a mouse.
NOTE: Because the second portion of this task judges non-responses as only correct or incorrect, the Rule2Feedback object has its 'No Response' state setup identical to the 'Incorrect' state. When a non-response is given correctly in this portion of the experiment, the Rule2Feedback object will show its 'Correct' state due to how the CorrectResponse Attribute is set up on PracticeList2 and subsequently, BlockList. Please see INFO: Specifying a non response as a correct response .When a non-response is given incorrectly in this portion of the experiment, the Rule2Feedback object will show the 'No Response' state.
