ReactTime: Reaction Time Data

Description

Data from Maxwell and Delaney (1990, p. 497) representing the reaction times of 10 subjects in some task where visual stimuli are tilted at 0, 4, and 8 degrees; with noise absent or present. Each subject responded to 3 tilt x 2 noise = 6 conditions. The data thus comprise a repeated measure design with two within-S factors.

Usage

data(ReactTime)

Arguments

Format

A data frame with 10 observations giving the reaction time for the 6 conditions.

deg0NA

a numeric vector

deg4NA

a numeric vector

deg8NA

a numeric vector

deg0NP

a numeric vector

deg4NP

a numeric vector

deg8NP

a numeric vector

Examples

# NOT RUN {
data(ReactTime)
(RT.mod <- lm(as.matrix(ReactTime)~1))

# within-S factors
within <- expand.grid(tilt=ordered(c(0,4,8)), noise=c("NA", "NP"))
Anova(RT.mod, idata=within, idesign=~tilt * noise)

heplot(RT.mod, idata=within, idesign=~tilt * noise, iterm="tilt")

# plotting means and std errors directly

levels <- expand.grid(Tilt=c(0,4,8), noise=c("NA", "NP"))
(means.df <- data.frame(levels, mean=colMeans(ReactTime), se=sqrt(diag(var(ReactTime)))/9))

	pts <- rep(c(15, 16), each=3)

	lines(Tilt[1:3], mean[1:3], col="red", lwd=2)
