a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
A task that asks participants to repeatedly decided how long to keep waiting for future monetary rewards (See Fig. 1a in paper link below). On each trial, the participant views a token that has no initial value but matures to a value of $0.30 after a random delay, and the participant can sell the token at any time to start a new trial and (possibly) maximize earnings.

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.


You must specify conditions before you can define contrasts.

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.


No indicators have yet been associated.

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).
