Available Test Forms

Auditory Oddball Task - English

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.
