Lecture DemosDigit Span Task
Digit Span TaskThis is a fairly typical implementation of the digit span forward task, similar to what one might encounter in a neuropsychological test battery. The task takes less than 5 min and can be done on a PC with a mouse or on a large touchscreen (tablet or large mobile phone). The digit span is reported at the end of the task.
Lexical Decision Task
Lexical Decision TaskFairly complete implementation of a typical lexical decision task, which takes about 6 min. It is suitable for use in lectures, where the audience can do the task on a laptop (keyboard). Because keyboard responses are required, the task cannot be taken on a mobile phone. Mean reaction times to words and nonwords are reported at the end with total correct responses. Individual subjects can also download their own data in a format that can be imported into a spreadsheet, like Excel or Google Sheets.
Go/No-Go TaskThis is a fairly typical implementation of the Go/No-Go Task, which takes about 2.5 min. It is suitable for use in lectures, where the audience can take the test on a laptop (keyboard) or mobile phone (touch screen). Feedback is given (including d-prime based on Hits and False Alarms).
