This sample illustrates two methods for inserting a 'pause' during an experiment.
The first method uses a conditional statement to run an object from 'Unreferenced E-Objects' section at specific times throughout the experiment (e.g., after every 3 trials).
The second method (UserBreakState) looks for the Ctrl+Shift key sequence, then takes action according to what is defined in the script (e.g., Sleep, run another object, wait for input, etc.). This script may be placed throughout the experiment to allow pausing at different times.
For further information on scripting using E-Basic, please refer to the E-Prime Command Reference (https://pstnet.com/ecr).
