Parent-child interaction typically takes place in a small room containing a chair for the parent and three low tables. Objects that are attractive to children in this age range, but are not typically considered toys (e.g., a manual typewriter, an old school bell, a sealed glass jar of hard candy) are on the tables. The parent is instructed that the child is forbidden to touch these objects. The interaction consists of three tasks that present the parent with typical but challenging situations for the parent and child: 1. the parent is instructed to supervise the child for a maximum of 10 minutes in putting a set of toys into a plastic bin. 2. the parent gives the child another set of toys and is instructed to have the child play independently while the parent engages in a 10-minute simulated phone conversation with the experimenter. 3. the parent is told to have the child play quietly and independently on a mat while the parent completes questionnaires for 10 minutes.

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).
