STOP IT: Windows executable software for the stop-signal paradigm

Frederick Verbruggen UGent, Gordon D. Logan and Michaël Stevens UGent (2008) Behavior Research Methods. 40. p.479-483
abstract
The stop-signal paradigm is a useful tool for the investigation of response inhibition. In this paradigm, subjects are instructed to respond as fast as possible to a stimulus unless a stop signal is presented after a variable delay. However, programming the stop-signal task is typically considered to be difficult. To overcome this issue, we present software called STOP-IT, for running the stop-signal task, as well as an additional analyzing program called ANALYZE-IT. The main advantage of both programs is that they are a precompiled executable, and for basic use there is no need for additional programming. STOP-IT and ANALYZE-IT are completely based on free software, are distributed under the GNU General Public License, and are available at the personal Web sites ofthe first two authors or at expsy.ugent.be/tscope/stop.html.
