I want to set up an experiment in which there are 3 types of emotional stimuli (A, B, C). A and C would have a 1% recurrence probability, for rare and unexpected stimuli. Is there any sample of oddball paradigm for E-Prime?

Pstnet, the editor of Eprime, does not provide a sample for oddball paradigms. And sharing Eprime scripts is rare but you may find a script of interest here

This is part of an initiative described at File summaries are here (click on "see all files"). This auditory oddball file is far from being a sample though.

Thank you for sharing this information. I am looking at the file and hopefully I can built up my experiment. However, I cannot run this oddball because it is looking for the scanner. – Dana Sugu Jul 18 '13 at 5:13
There is a place that shares some E-prime scripts: – Dana Sugu Jul 18 '13 at 8:40
Nice - Here is a visual oddball task I programmed with e-prime 1.2 -… – marsei Jul 18 '13 at 9:48
Thank you so much. I can run it fine. I shall learn from you how to programme my experiment. Probably I have to acknowledge your help, if you provide me with the details. :) Thank you again. – Dana Sugu Jul 18 '13 at 15:13

Not that it answers your specific question, but there is this Inquisit script for auditory oddball:

There is a 30-day trial version of Inquisit.
