NOTE: These tasks are programmed in E-Prime. Be sure you are using E-Prime Professional 126.96.36.1996 or higher to run all tasks. Also, E-Prime is optimized to run on Windows 8.1 or lower, so please be sure your testing computer is not using a newer version of Windows. We hope to have validated versions of these tasks programmed in PsychoPy over the next year.
