Inquisit Language Reference
The mode attribute controls the procedure used to obtain a response from the subject.
One of the following values:
Setting the mode attribute to window causes Inquisit to display the stimulus assigned to the rwstimulus attribute for an interval or window of time. The length of the interval is rwwidth ms and the middle of the interval occurs rwcenter ms following the end of the last stimulus presentation frame. If the subject responds during the interval, the stimulus assigned to rwhitstimulus is displayed and remains on the screen for rwhitduration ms. If rwhitstimulus is not defined and the rwstimulus is text, the rwstimulus turns red and remains on the screen for rwhitduration ms. If rwhitstimulus is not defined and the rwstimulus is not text, then the rwstimulus is erased from screen and a rwhitduration ms pause ensues. If the subject responds before the window, the rwstimulus never appears. If the subject responds after the interval, the rwstimulus disappears.
Depending upon performance on a given block in this experiment, Inquisit may adjust the window center value for subsequent blocks involving this <response>.
The window center is increased by 33 ms if
The window center is decreased by 33 ms if
