Students will learn how to design a RT experiment, and measure, preprocess and analyse reaction time and accuracy data. Next to classical methods (outlier detection, repeated-measures analysis-of-variance), students will also learn more advanced methods including (macro- and

micro-level) speed-accuracy trade-off functions, and describing RT data using statistics such as hazard and survivor functions.
