Data for: Synchronization and fractal scaling as resources for cognitive control

Published: 11 May 2018 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/r2stj2hfhw.1

Description of this data

Response times, keypress durations, and sinusoidal ITI and ISI stimuli from the three experiments described in the article "Synchronization and fractal scaling as resources for cognitive control". Please see the article for more information about the dataset, or contact the corresponding author at with specific questions. The sheet titled TE_RT_RawData contains raw temporal estimates, in milliseconds, for each of the 50 participants. One participants 1100 trials in each column. The first 10 columns correspond to the 10 participants in the Constant ITI condition, columns 11-20 contain data for the High Frequency sine, columns 21-30 contain the Low Frequency data, columns 31-40 contain the Both Frequencies data, and the remaining 10 columns contain the random data. The sheet entitled TE_DR_RawData contains the key-press durations for each participant, in the order corresponding to the order of the temporal estimates. The Simple Reaction data is organized the same way, but each condition used 15 participants, so the condition columns are 1-15 = Constant, 16-30 = High Frequency, 31-45 = Low Frequency, 46-60 = Both Frequencies, and 61-75 = Random ITIs. The SRT key-press durations use the same organization. The ITI/ISI stimuli appear in the TE and SRT SINE input sheet, the dyad temporal estimation data in the DYADTE_RT_RawData. NOTE that the Left Hand is in data rows 1:2:2199, which corresponds to odd spreadsheet rows 3, 5, 7, etc. The Right Hand data is in data rows 2:2:2200, corresponding to even spreadsheet rows 4, 6, 8 etc. Negative values in the dyadic data indicate miscued trials, and should be treated as positive TE values in analyses. No negative values should appear in the Individual temporal estimation or simple reaction trials. The Dyad ITI stimuli appear in the DYADITIs sheet, along with a normalized period 40 sine wave that was used for the global synchronization analysis.
