Auditory Oddball Task
The Auditory Oddball Task as described in Williams, Simms, Clark, and Paul (2005). The script uses baseline tones of 500hz and oddball tones of 1000hz. TTL Marker signals indicating stimulus onset, type of stimulus, and response times are sent to the parallel port for purposes of synchronizing with EEG/ERP measures.
Auditory Oddball Task (no markers)
The task as described by Williams et al (2005) without marker signals (can be run on any computer).
Mismatched Negativity Oddball Task
The Mismatched Negativity Oddball procedure as described in Bramon et al (2004).
