priming: Simulated data for a Semantic Priming Experiment

Description Usage Format References


A data frame containing simulated data for a Semantic Priming Experiment. This data contains 514 prime-target pairs, which are taken from the Hutchison, Balota, Cortese and Watson (2008) study. These pairs are generated by pairing each of 257 target words with one semantically related and one semantically unrelated prime.
The data frame contains four columns:

  • First column: Prime Words

  • Second column: Target Words

  • Third column: Simulated Reaction Times

  • Fourth column: Specifies whether a prime-target pair is considered semantically related or unrelated
