a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
On each trial, participants have to direct their attention to either a face or a house within a visual compound stimulus and judge the age of the shown example. Participants are instructed to determine whether to attend to face or house as follows: The category on the first trial of each block is instructed. Then, the category remained the same as long as the ages of the images in that category remained the same. If the age changed between trials, the participant should switch attention to the other category on the following trial. Finally, we told participants that no age comparison was required on the first trial after a switch.

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).
