    Include a word search in MediaLab?

    Is there a good way to include a word search task in MediaLab?

    I am hoping to do the same. I need to have a static display of 3 small word search puzzles (ppt. worked for this), but I also need an interface window where people can type in the words that they "find" below this static display.
    I will have people do the word search task for 2 minutes, then switch to another media lab task for a short duration, and then come back to the interrupted word search task. I would like the words that they originally found to be preserved and still within the interface window.

    Can I ask what the "other medialab task" would be? I ask because I think the easiest way to achieve this would be to somehow leave the task running and then have the other task run and end in parallel. Or vice versa. There are different ways to do this but depends on the task.

    hi

    the second task is a long evaluative conditioning task (lasts 13 minutes). Basically it is a prime - word pair presented on the screen with an LDT to the second word. The problem with leaving the word puzzle on the screen is that I would like to do the whole process automatically, without having to involve RAs at different steps of the experiment.

    Are you interested in saving the data from both tasks, or is one a filler task?

    yes

    Hi!
    Yes, I would like data from both to be recorded--neither is a filler task.
