Dual-video visual probe task: Assessment of Attentional Bias to Alcohol (ABA) software
Software, image files, and a brief user guide to install and run a dual-video visual probe task designed to measure a participant’s attentional bias to alcohol are provided.
Attentional bias to alcohol is measured by presenting the dual video stimuli and assessing relative attention to the alcohol video clip compared to a matching non-alcohol video clip.
The software is provided "as is" and the contributors to this work disclaim all warranties with regard to this software. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide software support.
