Stop-signal task with unconditional and conditional stopping

Subjects performed two versions of a stop signal task.  In the unconditional stop-signal task, subjects are told to withhold their response whenever they hear a tone.  In the conditional stop signal task, they are told to withhold their response if they hear the tone and the response is the one labeled as critical, whereas they should go ahead and respond if the response is the noncritical one.

Revision history:

12/20/2012: The originally posted version of this dataset was missing some onsets for task002. The newly posted version contains the full set of onsets for all conditions.  If only the onsets and model info are needed, they can be obtained by downloading the updated onsets file and untarring it in the main ds008 directory.

3/7/2016: Remove sub008 due to inconsistently defined onsets.

5/22/2016: Converted to BIDS file structure

Tasks:

001 stop signal task

002 conditional stop signal task

Converted to BIDS format

Revision: 1.1.1 Date Set: March 7, 2016, 5:12 p.m.

Notes:

Remove sub008 due to inconsistent onsets. task001/cond001 and cond004 had identical onsets. All other data remain the same. sub008 data are still available in R1.1.0 dataset.
