Measurement of the stochastic distribution of reaction time or latency has become a popular technique that can potentially provide precise, quantitative information about the underlying neural decision mechanisms. However, this approach typically requires data from large numbers of individual trials, in order to enable reliable distinctions to be made between different models of decision. When data are not plentiful, an approximation to full distributional information can be provided by using a… CONTINUE READING
