[solved] response time timing
Love open sesame, super easy to use. Having a little trouble though.
I'm trying to program a response time task to an audio beep. What I want to have is a series of beeps times 1200ms apart (with 300ms jitter), where Ps press the Space bar as quickly as possible when they hear the tone. I need that timing I've chosen to remain consistent. Here's my setup
In my loop I have it set to cycle as many times as the study calls for. My synth is 100ms in duration, my advanced delay is set to 1200ms with 300ms jitter. my keyboard response is set so SPACE is an allowed response. Here's my problem:
-If i have the timeout on the keyboard response left blank or set to infinite, when I run the experiment, the computer will wait until I press SPACE, then start the next advanced delay, which screws up the timing.
- If I have the timeout set to 0, the beeps follow the timing perfectly, but no data is recorded. In my data set under response time, it just reads NA over and over.
I could set the timeout to something like 900ms and then subtract that out of the advanced delay, but then the audio beeps are going to be spaced out different for all my participants. Basically I want the beeps to be performing like the timeout is set to 0 (and all the beeps are set about 1200ms apart) but to be recording the data.
Is there a way to do this? Or a setup I can use that will work better for this?
Look forward to getting a response.
