Is there any way to allow a response from a keyboard AND mouse on a given trial?

Thanks!

Derek,

Inquisit does not currently allow responses from different input devices on a given trial. This is certainly something we will consider for a future release.

For clarification, do you wish to allow either a mouse or keyboard response on a given trial, or would your task require a combination of mouse and keyboard signals.

Cheers,
Sean

Thanks for the feedback.

Note that you can hide the mouse cursor in Inquisit by setting the input device to touchscreen as opposed to mouse. That's basically the only difference between the two modes.

Also, could you solve the carry over problem by requiring subects to move the mouse a center region on the screen (could be a circle, square, etc.)?

Cheers,
Sean

Thanks for the touchscreen tip! That will really be a big help as my method to hide the mouse cursor was sort of tedious to do.

As for the cary over problem, I can imagine circumstances where having the user return the mouse to the center of the screen would not be ideal. This wouldn't work well in my study for a couple of reasons. First, I have to hide the mouse so this would be impossible. Second, I will be asking participants to respond as quickly as possible, basically trying to capture their reflexive reaction to on-screen stimuli moving in different directions. I would rather not have the participant have to think about carefully moving the mouse back to the center of the circle after every trial.
