a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
Infants are trained to associate an image with a linguistic (often a nonsense word) cue and, during testing, hear this auditory cue and see its paired image next to a novel image. If the infant demonstrates a significant preference for the cue-paired word, this is considered evidence for the capacity for word learning.

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).
