Developmental cognitive neuroscience is at the forefront of research on adolescent risk taking. However, commonly used tasks have relatively low ecological validity (like the Balloon Analogue Risk Task), or confound risky and adaptive responding (some iterations of the original Stoplight Driving Game). To address this, we developed the Yellow Light Game (YLG). It is also a simple driving simulation with a series of intersections, but with more flexibility to set various parameters. The goal is to reach the finish line as quickly as possible.
