The ModRey is a test of episodic memory performance in non-clinical and pre-clinical populations. It differs from the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (RAVLT) by increasing its difficulty. Specifically the authors a) increased the number of items for the target and distractor lists from from 15 to 20 b) decreased the number of learning trials from 5 to 3 c) added an additional free recall trial of distractor list d) added a source memory task The original ModRey presents the words orally and collects oral responses. This Inquisit implementation presents the words orally and collects soundcaptures of the spoken recall responses. These soundcaptures have to be manually scored for accuracy. Recognition and Source Responses (part2) are collected via keyboard input. !Note: Millisecond Software also offers an alternative implementation of the Modrey with written recall input and the option of oral and/or visual word presentation. Written recall in those scripts is captured via textboxes that are scored by the script automatically. //References// Hale C, Last BS, Meier IB, Yeung LK, Budge M, Sloan RP, Small SA, Brickman AM.

It calls - Script modrey_oralrecall_part1.iqx - Script modrey_oralrecall_part2.iqx in this fixed order. Note that scripts 'modrey_oralrecall_part1.iqx' and 'modrey_oralrecall_part2.iqx' can also be run outside this batch script. Add any number of Inquisit scripts in between the two parts to fill the recommended delay of 1.5h. (see for additional information below under element batch.main) ////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ///////Script modrey_oralrecall_part1.iqx://////// ////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //(1) Learning Phase with Immediate Recall:// Participants are presented a list of 20 verbal words (fixed sequence, list A), one at a time at a time. Once the list has finished, a textbox appears and participants are asked to enter as many of the list words as they remember, in any order. The list learning/immediate recall task is repeated 2 more times. //(2) Introduction of Distractor List:// Then participants are distracted with distractor list B (one time). //(3) Short Delay //(4) Free Recall of List A:// After listB, participants are asked to recall all words from list A (list A is not presented anymore) ------------------End of part1---------------------------------------- //(5) Delay: 1.5h// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////// ///////Script modrey_oralrecall_part2.iqx://////// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////// //(6) Delayed recall of List A// - participants work through through a delayed recall test of list A //(7) Delayed recall of List B// - participants work through through a delayed recall test of list B //(8) Recognition Test (List A) - 66 trials// -target words are list A words; -distractors are phonetically similar and -list B words //(9) Source Test:// List A and List B words are presented in fixed order and participant has to decide the words' source list (A or B) ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ DURATION ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The default setup of this script takes about 1 3/4- 2hours (including the delay of 1.5h) Part 1 takes roughly: 10-15 minutes Part 2 takes roughly: 5 minutes ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ STIMULI ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ uses the words of the ModRey (Hale et al, 2019) (words were pronounced with Google Translate and saved as .wav files) Groupnumber 1 (odd) - Runs version1 stimuli (see modrey_items_form1.iqx) Groupnumber 2 (even) - runs version2 stimuli (see modrey_items_form2.iqx) ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ INSTRUCTIONS ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ are provided by Millisecond Software - can be edited in the individual scripts ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ DATA ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ see individual scripts "modrey_oralrecall_part1.iqx" "modrey_oralrecall_part2.iqx"
