Joystick-Operated Runway Task
A force-sensing joystick apparatus and associated software designed to administer runway type tasks for humans, a parallel to the traditional rodent task. The apparatus consists of a metal framework connecting a stool and force sensing joystick, together with a data projector and computer system to display a vertical runway. The runway display is controlled in real-time by the participants force input to the joystick to give a realistic feeling of motion. A number of trial types are available including force calibration, hardware and stimulus calibration, and threat and conflict phases, with and without the presentation of white noise pulses, or other aversive stimuli. Threat phases are characterized by single targets in pursuit of the participant controlled graphic, while conflict phases consist of pairs of targets in pursuit of the participant controlled graphic.
