Previous studies have revealed the impact of emotion on conflict processing. The present study was conducted to investigate whether cognitive control in the affective domain is also affected by emotion. Emotional face-word and body-word Stroop tasks were explored and contrasted, and both behavioural and electrophysiological measures were recorded. Behavioural results showed that both tasks replicated previous robust interference effects. At the physiological level, the two tasks showed… 

Dissociable early attentional control mechanisms underlying cognitive and affective conflicts

The findings suggest that cognitive and affective conflicts engage early dissociable attentional control mechanisms and a later common conflict response system as a function of proportion congruency.

The altered early components and the decisive later process underlying attention bias modification in social anxiety: evidence from event-related potentials

Abstract Attention bias modification (ABM) is a potential intervention in relieving social anxiety symptoms, while its underlying neural mechanisms are not yet understood. The current study included

How socioemotional setting modulates late-stage conflict resolution processes in the lateral prefrontal cortex

The data show that conflicts are stronger and more difficult to resolve than in a positive emotional task-relevant setting, where incongruent information barely induced conflicts, and how the socioemotional valence modulates cognitive control (conflict processing) is shown.

Affective modulation of cognitive control: A systematic review of EEG studies

Effects of aerobic exercise on sad emotion regulation in young women: an electroencephalograph study

The findings scope the benefits of the aerobic exercise on the neural efficiency in responding to sad emotion-eliciting cues as well as adaptive transitions reinstatement for regulatory capabilities in healthy young women.

Oscillatory EEG Signatures of Affective Processes during Interaction with Adaptive Computer Systems

Oscillatory signatures of positive and negative affective processes as reactions to system-initiated assistance are identified and contribute to the development of EEG-based neuroadaptive assistance loops by suggesting a non-obtrusive method for monitoring affect in HCI.

Does Eye Gaze Uniquely Trigger Spatial Orienting to Socially Relevant Information? A Behavioral and ERP Study

It is suggested that eye gaze uniquely triggers spatial attention orienting to socially threatening information.

Attentional bias during emotional processing: Behavioral and electrophysiological evidence from an Emotional Flanker Task

The observed spatiotemporal dynamics seem to concur with understanding of the important adaptive role attributed to threat-related attention bias, with behavioural and ERP responses drawn from four task conditions accompanied by significant modulations of ERP activity across all time-windows and regions of interest and displayed some meaningful correlations.

Differentiating emotion-label words and emotion-laden words in emotion conflict: an ERP study

Compared emotion-label words and emotion-laden words in emotion conflict using a flanker task, the findings suggest different cognitive and neural correlates of emotion- label words and emotions in emotion Conflict.



Positive emotion modulates cognitive control: an event-related potentials study.

Overall, the results indicated that positive emotion could facilitate cognitive control processing, in line with the neuropsychological theory, according to which,positive emotion could modulate cognitive control mediated by increased dopamine levels in frontal brain areas.

Emotion speeds up conflict resolution: a new role for the ventral anterior cingulate cortex?

The hypothesis that emotion speeds up conflict processing is supported and a new role for the vACC is suggested in processing conflict in particularly significant situations signaled by emotion.

Emotion and goal-directed behavior: ERP evidence on cognitive and emotional conflict.

It is confirmed that emotions have a strong influence on cognitive and emotional conflict processing, and the complexity and heterogeneity of the interaction of emotion with different types of conflict is highlighted.
