calculateDelta {DMCfun}R Documentation

calculateDelta

Description

Calculate delta plot. Here RTs are split into n bins (Default: 5) for compatible and incompatible trials separately. Mean RT is calculated for each condition in each bin then subtracted (incompatible - compatible) to give a compatibility effect (delta) at each bin.

Usage

calculateDelta(
  dat,
  nDelta = 19,
  tDelta = 1,
  columns = c("Subject", "Comp", "RT"),
  compCoding = c("comp", "incomp"),
  quantileType = 5
)

Arguments

dat

DataFrame with columns containing the participant number, condition compatibility, and RT data (in ms).

nDelta

The number of delta bins.

tDelta

type of delta calculation (1=direct percentiles points, 2=percentile bounds (tile) averaging)

columns

Name of required columns Default: c("Subject", "Comp", "RT")

compCoding

Coding for compatibility Default: c("comp", "incomp")

quantileType

Argument (1-9) from R function quantile specifying the algorithm (?quantile)

Value

calculateDelta returns a DataFrame with distributional delta analysis data (Bin, comp, incomp, meanBin, Effect)

Examples

# Example 1
dat <- createDF(nSubjects = 1, nTrl = 10000, design = list("Comp" = c("comp", "incomp")))
dat <- addDataDF(dat,
                 RT = list("Comp_comp"   = c(500, 80, 100),
                           "Comp_incomp" = c(600, 80, 140)))
delta <- calculateDelta(dat)

# Example 2
dat <- createDF(nSubject = 1, nTrl = 10000, design = list("Congruency" = c("cong", "incong")))
dat <- addDataDF(dat,
                 RT = list("Congruency_cong"   = c(500, 80, 100),
                           "Congruency_incong" = c(600, 80, 140)))
head(dat)
delta <- calculateDelta(dat, nDelta = 9, columns = c("Subject", "Congruency", "RT"),
                        compCoding = c("cong", "incong"))
