I am attempting to help a student create an autobiographical memory task in PsychoPy. I have attached a screenshot of the experiment, which runs fine, but the issue we have comes with stimuli selection.
There are 3 blocks, Specific, Categorical and Alternating.
We have a list of 8 negative words, 8 positive words and 8 neutral words.
The list is currently setup in the excel file to have all 24 words under “Word” and then beside it the word emotion (Emotion).
The Specific and Categorical blocks both need to display 6 words (2 of each emotion), the words will be shown in a random order, and cannot be carried over into the next block.
The Alternating block will then display the remaining 12 words (4 of each emotion), the instructions for this also need to randomize between 2 types of instruction.
I understand that something like this might be possible with code components, but I don’t know where to start.
Hopefully I have explained this well enough. Essentially it’s 3 blocks, 24 words total, with 3 word types. The first 2 blocks need to show 6 words (2 of each type) without repeating across blocks. The final block will show the remaining words, whilst also alternating between which instruction set is shown.
I have attached the list and the PsychoPy file for guidance.
