monicathieu/psytrial: Estimate Necessary Trial Counts for a Behavioral Task

This package is designed to assist psychological/behavioral researchers in determining how long their experimental tasks need to be. Researchers often use the rule of thumb that "more trials is better", to reduce error in estimating parameters for an experimental participant, but participant fatigue and other constraints make it imperative for researchers to find the minimum number of trials for a given behavioral task that will reliably estimate parameters of interest. This package contains a series of functions that generate data from one simulated experimental participant for any of a set of common cognitive task paradigms, and report power in measuring single-participant parameters as a function of trial count.
