Attention Network task


I am trying to re-create the ANT task on psychoPy but woth fewer trials so that in total it lasts for 15 minutes as I will be combining it with two additional tasks. I have downloaded the resources although I am unsure as to how to build it. Does anyone have a link to a demo that could help with understanding how to construct it on PsychoPy? Thank you.

Hi There! I would recommend downloading the gitlab repository for the available online version in pavlovia

Hope this helps,


thank you but I need to re-create it with fewer trials I can only use the psychopy builder.

In this file there is a PsychoPy builder file

download the repository from the link and open the psyexp file in your builder :blush:

From there you can also adjust the number of trials

Hi Becca,

when using the builder, how would you go about reducing the number of time the stimulus is repeated? I am also trying to reduce the length of the task but still want the participants to see all the trials


Hi Becca,

Thank you very much for this! it is very useful. I have a question. I would like to use this task in an experiment. Then, how can I cite this task if I use this version? By citing the web Thanks!

Hi @Dohernba ! thanks for offering to cite, we need to upload relevant references for each of our demos from our side. For the moment I think it would be ok to use:

Open Science Tools core team (2021). The Attention Network Task [Computer software demo]. Retrieved from demos / The Attention Network Task · GitLab

Since this is a basic demo maintained by the team
