I customised a Priming task. Everything seems to work well, but when I looked at my results, Pcibex is logging consecutive values for three columns (item, prime and target). I was hoping to get the reading times for the target word or the pressed answer timestamp. Besides the pressed answer (FJ). Instead I got consecutive numbers, I’m not able to figure out where they came from.
So PennController reports in all three columns the value of the “item” cell from the row that was used to generate the current trial, as it’s been told to
You can find the timestamp corresponding to the keypress in the results line(s) corresponding to the Key element (which PennController knows to log because log is called on the Key element: newKey("answerTarget", "FJ").log().wait() // Proceed upon press on F or J (log it))
I am wondering if there is a way to log the time between the target presentation and the button press? Instead of doing the math afterwards.. Kind of like it is done on self-paced reading task, in which we collect the reading times between each space bar press.
