BACKGROUND Cognitive control refers to the ability to selectively attend and respond to task-relevant events while resisting interference from distracting stimuli or prepotent automatic responses. The current study aimed to determine whether interference suppression and response inhibition are separable component processes of cognitive control. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Fourteen young adults completed a hybrid Go/Nogo flanker task and continuous EEG data were recorded concurrently. The… CONTINUE READING
