Set of duration time

In my experiment, I want participants to respond stimuli by pressing the button after 5000ms. Do you know how to set the duration time for it?

Thanks a lot!


  • Hi,

    That depends on what exactly you want. If participants should respond within 5 seconds, you present a sketchpad (or whatever your stimulus is) and set its duration to 0. Next, add a keyboard response to the sequence that has the duration set to 5000. With these settings participants have 5 seconds to respond to the stimulus while it remains on the screen. If you want that they respond exactly after 5 seconds, you should allow for slower responses, so you could set the duration to 10000.

    Does that answer your question?
