CORE Choice in Action Mousetracker Workshop
Monday, 4 November 2013 from 11:00 to 13:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Overview of the workshop
The aim of this workshop is to enable participants to collect data on movement during choice responses and introduce methods of analysis of the dynamics of such intra-response movement.
Ongoing movement provides an index of ongoing cognition and this workshop will provide the tools necessary for participants to begin gathering and analysing data on semi-continuous computer-mouse trajectories during computer–based experimental tasks
By peering within the response, rather than focusing just on its end-point choice, we can begin to examine its dynamic characteristics and compare them to the fine-grained predictions presented by theoretical accounts of the time-course of mental activity.
Participants will learn how to collect computer-mouse cursor movement data using Mousetracker, a popular experiment-generation software package, and how to import and analyze these data.
