Task Details


The mental arithmetic task simply presents participants with mental arithmetic questions that are taken from a stimuli .csv file. There is some versatility in how you setup the task. For example you can set different blocks of questions that handle a particular type of operation (e.g. multiplication) and seperate these out from other questions. This can be of use if you are using a developing population and are unsure if multiplication/division questions might skew the results. In addition, you can either set a number of questions that need to be answered or the more likely option of having a time limit that determines when to stop executing the task.
