Dear list,
I need an help to understand the syntax of lme to fit my model according to the analysis I want to perform.

My dependent variable resulted from a perceptual experiment in which responses of participants were measured twice for each provided stimulus. My goal is to verify whether the responses depend on two properties of the participants that I know to be related to each other (height and weight, so they need to be considered together as an interaction). More importantly, I need to understand how this relationship modulates according to the type of stimulus participants were presented to.

Based on my understanding of lme syntax, the formula I have to use should be the following (because I am only interested in the interaction factor of Weight and Height)

lme_dv <- lme(dv ~ Weight:Height:Stimulus_Type, data = scrd, random = ~ 1 | Subject)

Am I correct?

Thank you in advance

Best regards
