Extrinsic incentives can have a great impact on action control and flexible behavior. However, we are only beginning to understand how incentive motivation influences our behaviour (Braver et al., 2014). In two pilot large behavioral pilot experiments, we examined whether external incentives could alter performance in a stop-change task (Experiment 1; N = 72) and a stop-signal task (Experiment 2; N = 108). The method and results are discussed in two reports (UTM_ActR_RW*_overview.pdf), which can be found in the Documentation folder of the zip files. The zip files also contain the raw behavioral data (Data folder), R analysis scripts (Software folder), and additional experiment documentation (Documentation folder).
