Mean RTs?

Posted by Benambridge on 09 Feb 2014 at 17:25 GMT

Sorry if this was in the paper or supplementary materials somewhere, but I couldn't find it. What was the Mean RT and SD for this study, and how does it compare with other studies? The best estimate I could find elsewhere seemed to be M=275ms, SD=160 (from Woodley et al, 2013).

Sorry, found it! M=243, SD=58 - so a very similar mean but much smaller SD
