(A) Illustration of the large scale scientific instrument for the study of human behavior. (B) Histograms of correct response times on English words as a function of word frequency (very high frequency words such as “WITH”, VHF; high frequency, HF; low frequency, LF; very low frequency such as “ORANGEADE”, VLF). Histograms were computed using 100 ms bins (“+” signs linked by a spline interpolation function). (C) Scatterplot of mean correct response times on words binned by word frequency in groups of 2500.
