BIDS format / OpenNeuro
All data is be converted to BIDS format and uploaded to OpenNeuro as an open access dataset. Data triggers are cleaned using several routines listed below. These have been used to realign stimulus triggers to optical onset of the projector. Datasets that have logfiles have been merged with the trigger data to label triggers and responses.

Description: 3 sound stimuli presented to the participant. The participant attends to the "standard" tone stimuli (210 epochs) and is required to respond to the "target" tone stimuli (45 epochs) that are intermixed with the standard tone. Additionally a broadband noise stimuli is presented as a "distractor" stimuli (45 epochs).
UADC003 - Left Ear auditory stimuli UADC004 - Right Ear auditory stimuli UADC005 - Participant response UPPT001 - Stimuli Coding (standard:1, target:2, distractor:3)
Emotional processing task contrasting happy and sad faces. Shapes are used as neutral baselines. An initial "top stim" will be shown followed by a fixation crosshair. The subject is supposed to respond during the "choice stim" by pressing the left or right response button that corresponds to the face matching the "top stim" presentation.
