Experiment 1

General introduction to E1 here.



The experiment employed a traditional exogenous cuing paradigm whereby targets appeared in peripheral locations following a peripheral cue and participants were asked to indicate detection of these targets as rapidly as possible. Additionally, on each trial a color wheel appeared immediately after detection response on which participants were asked to indicate the color of the preceding target. Variables were manipulated within-participants and included Cue Validity (valid vs neutral vs invalid) and SOA (100ms, 800ms). Targets could appear on the left or right side of the screen and on 20% of trials no target was presented, serving as catch trials to discourage anticipatory responding. Thus, 3\(\times\)2\(\times\)2\(\times\)5
