The Go/No-go Association Task
This script runs the Go/No-go Association Task (GNAT), a measure of implicit social cognition developed by Brian Nosek (Nosek & Banaji, 2001). This is a demonstration script created by Brian Nosek that measures automatic attitudes toward fruit and bugs. If you plan to use the GNAT for research, you should carefully review the parameters of the GNAT outlined in Nosek & Banaji (2001) in the context of your research question. Please see Project Implicit for details.
