This experiment has one block of trials with 22 samples. The Probe1 TextObject samples animal names from three unreferenced lists; falselist, lowhigh, and highlow List Objects. Animal names are presented for 2000 milliseconds followed by an animal body part that displays for 10,000 milliseconds or until the partcipant responds with a '1' or '2' on their keyboard.
