rwincunit attribute

The rwincunit attribute specifies the number of milliseconds to increment the response window center if the accuracy and speed of the subject's performance meet conditions for lengthening the response window.

Member of

<response>

Syntax

/ rwincunit = integer

Parameters

integer A non-negative integer indicating the number of milliseconds to increment the window.

Remarks

The default is 33 milliseconds. See Adjusting the Response Window for details.

Examples

The following response defines a response window with an initial center of 500 ms and width of 150 ms. A black exclamation point appears on the screen during the window. If the response is in the window, it turns green and remains on teh screen for 300 ms. Otherwise it turns red. The window is incremented by 75 ms if the mean latency for the block is greater than the current center + 50 ms and the percent correct is less than 60%. The window is decremented if the mean latency for the block is 50 ms earlier than the window center and the percent correct is greater than or equal to 80%. The maximum window center 1000 ms and the minimum is 200 ms:
