Emerging Target Paradigm (Kozak)

A special thanks to Kozak et al. for requesting to post this task. Rebecca Kozak will be pleased to help you with questions about the task. The provided *.SLX file is for MATLAB 2015a, and the compiled *.DLM is for Dexterit-E 3.10. This task is designed to work on Kinarm End-Point labs only.

This is the emerging target paradigm described in (Kozak et al. 2020). This task will draw an inverted ‘Y’, with an occluder blocking the divergence. A moving target will appear at the top of an inverted ‘Y’, moves down the initial straight away, disappears behind an occluder, then reappears below the occluder, emerging from the outlets in one of two directions.
