Control and interference in task switching--a review.
The task-switching paradigm offers enormous possibilities to study cognitive control as well as task interference. The current review provides an overview of recent research on both topics. First, weExpand

Conscious control over the content of unconscious cognition
Visual stimuli (primes) presented too briefly to be consciously identified can nevertheless affect responses to subsequent stimuli - an instance of unconscious cognition. There is a lively debate asExpand

Measurement of ERP latency differences: a comparison of single-participant and jackknife-based scoring methods.
We used computer simulations to evaluate different procedures for measuring changes in the onset latency of a representative range of event-related components (the auditory and visual N1, P3, N2pc,Expand

Four different types of protease‐activated receptors are widely expressed in the brain and are up‐regulated in hippocampus by severe ischemia
A variety of extracellular serine proteases are expressed in the central nervous system or might permeate the blood–brain barrier under pathological conditions. However, their intracerebral targetsExpand

The stressed prefrontal cortex and goal-directed behaviour: acute psychosocial stress impairs the flexible implementation of task goals
Goals are often at the basis of human actions. As an essential mechanism of behavioural adaptation, individuals need to be able to flexibly implement new task goals so as to alter their actionsExpand

Learning at any rate: action–effect learning for stimulus-based actions
Recent studies reported converging evidence for action–effect associations if participants adopted an intention-based action control mode in free choice conditions, whereas no evidence forExpand

Task switching: on the origin of response congruency effects
When people frequently alternate between simple cognitive tasks, performance on stimuli which are assigned the same response in both tasks is typically faster and more accurate than on stimuli whichExpand

Auditory warning signals affect mechanisms of response selection: evidence from a Simon task.
Irrelevant tone (accessory) stimuli facilitate performance in simple and choice reaction time tasks. In the present study, we combined accessory stimulation with a selective attention paradigm inExpand

Unconscious manipulation of free choice in humans
Previous research has shown that subliminally presented stimuli accelerate or delay responses afforded by supraliminally presented stimuli. Our experiments extend these findings by showing thatExpand

Adaptive control of ideomotor effect anticipations.
According to ideomotor theory, voluntary actions are selected and initiated by means of anticipated action effects. Prior experiments yielded evidence for these effect anticipations withExpand
