a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
Subjects are presented with a task cue followed by a colored number (1-9 excluding 5 in orange or blue). The task cue indicates whether to respond to the colored number based on parity (odd-even), magnitude (higher-lower than 5) or color (orange-blue). There are three different tasks, and each task has two task cues that evoke the task action. For example, the task cue could be either parity or odd-even. Both of these task cues indicate that the subject should judge the subsequent colored number based on whether it is an odd or even number.

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


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).
