The stop-signal paradigm has become ubiquitous in investigations of inhibitory control. Tasks inspired by the paradigm, referredto as stop-signal tasks, require participants to make responses on go trials and to inhibit those responses when presented with astop-signal on stop trials. Currently, the most popular version of the stop-signal task is the ‘choice-reaction’ variant, whereparticipants make choice responses, but must inhibit those responses when presented with a stop-signal. An alternative to thechoice-reaction variant of the stop-signal task is the ‘anticipated response inhibition’ task. In anticipated response inhibition tasks,participants are required to make a planned response that coincides with a predictably timed event (such as lifting a finger from acomputer key to stop a filling bar at a predefined target). Anticipated response inhibition tasks have some advantages over themore traditional choice-reaction stop-signal tasks and are becoming increasingly popular. However, currently, there are noopenly available versions of the anticipated response inhibition task, limiting potential uptake. Here, we present an open-source,free, and ready-to-use version of the anticipated response inhibition task, which we refer to as the OSARI (the Open-SourceAnticipated Response Inhibition) task.
