Columbia Card Task (Hot)
This script runs the "hot" version of the Columbia Card Task in which participants are displayed 32 cards, and instructed to turn over cards for points until they wish to stop and collect the points, or until a loss card is turned over and the amount of the loss is subtracted from their points. The task is considered to be a measure of risk-taking.
