Answered by AI

What are the definitive aims of this experiment?

"The objective of this 10-minute assessment is to capture Actigraphy data. Secondary objectives include obtaining results from Power Testing and Dimensional Card Sort (DCCS) as well as Pattern Comparison Test, with the ultimate aim being a comprehensive evaluation of executive function development. Power testing will involve warmups at 30% 1RM followed by 8 further reps ranging between 40%-80% 1RM that must be performed quickly yet accurately. The DCCS task requires participants to match two target pictures across two dimensions using bivalent test pics while also switching up their selections when prompted. Finally, the Pattern Comparison Test involves identifying whether or not"
