Hi,

I need to demonstrate the AAT experiment that I conducted for my undergrad thesis during my orals defense board in a few weeks.  I have tried editing the script myself to condense it, but I have it programmed so that trigger warnings pop up before the aversive images.  Every time I have tried condensing it myself, the warnings begin appearing before all images rather than just the aversive ones.

The aversive images that I would like to include are:  1_A_L.jpg, 1_SP_L.jpg, 1_P_L.jpg, 1_BL_L.jpg, 1_G_L.jpg, 1_DR_L.jpg, 1_AL_L.jpg, 1_D_L.jpg, 1_PB_L.jpg, 1_WA_L.jpg

and the following neutral images: 2_1_L.jpg, 2_2_L.jpg, 2_3_L.jpg, 2_4_L.jpg, 2_5_L.jpg, 2_6_L.jpg, 2_7_L.jpg, 2_8_L.jpg, 2_9_L.jpg, 2_10_L.jpg


I would like to rid of all other stimuli and have the aformentioned ones only shown once each. I would also like the trigger warnings that I have programmed to only appear before the aversive set of images that I mentioned above.

Below is the script that I have so far, please let me know what I can do to make this happen, thanks!

This is the real task.
^^You will be presented with different types of images in either landscape or portrait format. Just like you did during practice,
^^**********************************************************************************
^* Move the mouse UP if you see a rectangle in <%values.format2%> format
^^* Move the mouse DOWN if you see a rectangle in <%values.format1%> format
^***********************************************************************************
^^^Be as fast and accurate as you possibly can. There will be 80 images total.
^^^Click the button to start.

<page End>
You have reached the end of the task.
^^Please notify the experimenter by raising your hand to indicate that you are ready to move on to the next component of this experiment.

#2: Adjust the <values> entries

...
</values>

accordingly. They represent the number of items in each of the 8 stimulus categories.

#3: Adjust the item index numbers in the <list> elements <list category1> to <list category8> accordingly. You have removed items in step #1, i.e. the new item numbers are now different and the lists need to reflect that.

#4: Adjust
<values >
/totaltrialcount = 80
...
</values>

accordingly. Fewer items means fewer trials.

#5: Adjust <list stimcats> accordingly. There are now fewer items in each category.
