Dear list users, Does anyone know quite how long a participant should perform trials before they are given a break? I am using musical excerpts approximately 10seconds in length and was intending to give a break after every 60th trial (10minutes) However, I am concerned that this may be too much musical information to recieve and process in experimental conditions. Is there a standard time lapse for when a break should be given? Thanks in advance Bryony
