Collection of reaction times - question
After setting up my experiment via OpenSesame (great software!) I want to record my participants' reaction time to a specific target sketchpad.
The structure of my trialsequence is shown in the screenshot.
Now I have three questions regarding this:
- Will this set-up produce reliable collections of the reaction time to my target sketchpad (and only my target sketchpad)?
- During the process, OpenSesame recorded a variable that was called "response_time_Target" which I understood was the response_time to my target sketchpad. Now this variable is gone and I am left with the "response_time" variable. Am I still recording the reaction time to the target slide or something else? (like maybe the general response time to a whole trial or sth...)
- I set the duration of the target sketchpad to 0, as advised in the tutorial for the gazecuing experiment. Also I run a "correction trial" after every false trial (see this thread: http://forum.cogsci.nl/index.php?p=/discussion/3635/one-correction-trial-after-false-reaction#latest). Can I set the duration of this sketchpad to 0 also and append a keyboard_response item behind it without screwing up my logfile or mixing up the recorded reaction times?
I would be happy if someone had a quick answer to these issues as I want to start collecting data by tomorrow...
Cheers and happy holiday!
