When foreperiods (FPs) of different duration vary on a trial-by-trial basis equiprobably but randomly, the RT is faster as the FP increases (variable FP effect), and becomes slower as the FP on the preceding trial gets longer (sequential effects). It is unclear whether the two effects are due to a common mechanism or to two different ones. Patients with… CONTINUE READING
