BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
This script implements a computerized version of the Multidimensional Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness (MAIA)
as described in:

Mehling WE, Price C, Daubenmier JJ, Acree M, Bartmess E, Stewart A. (2012) The Multidimensional Assessment of 
Interoceptive Awareness (MAIA). PLoS ONE 7(11): e48230. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0048230

OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
32 6-point Likert scale, self-report
											  
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 3 minutes to complete

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DATA FILE INFORMATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	 
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'maia.iqdat'

date, time:						date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber 
subject, group, session:	  		 with the current subject/groupnumber/session id
build:							the Inquisit build 

q*_response:					response given (in assigned values)
									Scale: 0(never)-5(always)
									R = automatically reversed scored questions
									
q*_latency:						how much time (in ms) the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular 
								question (the last time this particular surveypage was visited)

(2) Summary data file: 'maia_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android)
script.startdate:					date script was run
script.starttime:					time script was started
script.subjectid:					assigned subject id number
script.groupid:					assigned group id number
script.sessionid:					assigned session id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms); measured from onset to offset of script
script.completed:					0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 
								1 = script was completed (all conditions run)

Subscale scores: the higher the scores the more positive the body awareness (Range: 0-5)

expressions.Noticing = mean of (q1,q2,q3,q4)
expressions.NotDistracting = mean of (q5R,q6R,q7R) R=reversed scored
expressions.NotWorrying = mean of (q8R,q9R,q10) R=reversed scored
expressions.AttentionRegulation = mean of (q11,q12,q13,q14,q15,q16,q17)
expressions.EmotionalAwareness = mean of (q18,q19,q20,q21,q22)
expressions.SelfRegulation = mean of (q23,q24,q25,q26)
expressions.BodyListening = mean of (q27,q28,q29)
expressions.Trusting = mean of (q30,q31,q32)
