The go/no-go task is similar to the stop-signal task in that both investigate the ability to inhibit a response.
The go/no-go is a cognitive task aimed at determining the ability of an individual to inhibit a response deemed inappropriate.
Experimental paradigms measuring response times (RTs) often assess how the information-processing sequence of perception, decision making, and action are organized. A tool commonly employed in this endeavor is the two choice task which typically requires participants to respond to a presented stimulus using one of two possible choice responses . An alternative tool is the go/no-go task where participants are required to either respond (i.e., pressing designated key) or withhold a response (not pressing designated key) depending on whether a go stimulus or a no-go stimulus is presented (Verbruggen & Logan, 2008). It has been argued that compared to the two choice task, the data collected from go/no-go procedure...
