Data for: Set-Shifting and Place-Keeping as Separable Control Processes
We present data from three experiments using a sequential binary choice task that explore the relationship between two proposed cognitive control functions: set-shifting and place-keeping (i.e., keeping track of one’s place within a sequential task). The task involves switching from one stimulus-response mapping to another across trials, according to a predefined sequence and in the face of occasional brief interruptions. Response-stimulus interval, interruption length and interrupting task were varied. In each study, response time, sequential error type and interruption accuracy were recorded.
