The layout of a trial in the Global Effect task.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
The angle of deviation towards the top or bottom image is calculated as the difference between the participant’s first saccade (represented by a black circle) and the shortest path between the initial location of the fixation cross and the location where it reappears (on the left or right of the screen). Social and nonsocial reward images appeared in vertical pairs as shown, which were presented to the right or the left of the initial fixation cross for an equal number of times (40 times each). Participants were instructed to look only at the fixation cross, and ignore the images. The full set of stimuli is available on request from the first author.
