Incomplete display of a stimulus for a stimulus detection task
I have built a program using OpenSesame for a stimulus detection task for use in children. The stimulus for this task is a small box which is displayed for either 50 ms, 29 ms, or 17 ms. While the 50 ms and 29 ms stimuli appear to be displayed normally, I am experiencing issues with the 17 ms stimulus.
Unlike the long displays, the 17 ms display of the box appears to be inconsistent, such that sometimes the whole box is displayed but at other times only half of the box is displayed (ie, an incomplete display). Of note, the screen refresh on our computer is 60 hz, and it cannot be made to refresh faster.
So, I have two questions that arise from this issue. One, has anyone encountered an issue like this in a stimulus detection task using OpenSesame? Second, is there a way to fix this display issue (besides buying a computer that has a faster refresh rate)? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
