I am currently working on a sentence-picture matching task and I would like to record both accuracy and reaction times.
I am planning to use mouse clicks (instead of keyboard buttons) to make the task more child-friendly. However, in order to avoid effects of mouse position on my reaction time data (e.g. pointer on the left, correct image on the right/left -> longer/smaller RT), I would like the pointer to appear at the center of the screen, each time the participant needs to provide a response.
Is there a way to do this?
I have seen that I can record the coordinates of the mouse through the MouseTracker element but I would prefer to control the mouse position instead of using the coordinates as a covariate during data analysis.
