Promising High Monetary Rewards for Future Task Performance Increases Intermediate Task Performance

Figure 1

Schematic overview of the experimental task.

Each trial started with the presentation of a reward, sandwiched between a pre- and a post-mask (A), followed by two repetitions of the auditory Simon task (2×B). Between the two repetitions, a blank screen was presented for the duration of 1500 ms minus the time of the response to the first tone (if the response time exceeded 1500 ms, the task would continue automatically).
