You were not completely clear, but it appears that you have data where each subject has 
results from 8 "trials", as a pair of variables is changed.  If that is correct, then you 
want to have a variance that corrects for the repeated measures.  In R the glm command 
handles the simple case but not the repeated measures one.  Statisticially you can use a 
generalized estimating equations approach (package "gee") or a random effect per subject 
approach (lme or lmer package).

Because I receive errors in Stata I did not expect nor understand (if there are Stata experts who want to know more about the problems I face and can potentially help me solve them, I would be glad to give more details), I want to repeat the analysis in R. In Stata I would use the command: xtlogit DEP_PROP INDEP_A INDEP_B INDEP_C, i(ID). ID is the identifier for each subject. There are eight lines with data for each subject because there are three within factors (INDEP_A, B, C) with two levels each (0 and 1). I can repeat this analysis in R by using the command: glm(DEP_SUC ~ INDEP_A + INDEP_B + INDEP_C, family = ?binomial?). DEP_SUC is here a table with the successes and misses per row. Again, there are eight rows for each subject. But while I know how to group these lines in Stata by using the option i(ID ), I do not know what to do in R. I have sear!
