BART (Balloon Analogue Risk Task)
This experiment is a version of the Ba'loon Analog Risk Task (BART). Participants will be presented with a balloon. The participant will be prompted to inflate the balloon using the Right Arrow key. After successfully inflating the balloon by 1 unit, the participant will receive five points. The more the participant inflates the balloon, the more points they will receive. E-Prime randomly selects a number between 1 and 100 for each trial representing the total number of inflated units before the balloon bursts. If the participant inflates the balloon too much, it will pop and no points will be given. Participants will also have the choice to press the Left Arrow to advance the trial while keeping their points. There is one practice trial and 5 critical trials.
