When a Sternberg Search paradigm experiment is conducted, the experimenter looks at mean response times on trials where the participant made the correct response as a function of both set size and whether the probe was present or absent in the set. Typically, response time increases with set size. Usually the lines for target present and target absent trials are roughly parallel and they are usually superimposed.
