Test Description

The Go-No Go Test is a measure of response inhibition and uses a well-validated recognition reaction time paradigm with playing card stimuli. In this test, the playing cards are all either red or black jokers. The subject is asked whether the card displayed in the center of the screen is black. The subject is to press the Yes key when the joker card is black and to withhold a response (i.e., not respond) when it is red.
