Cognitive control over conflicting information has been studied extensively using tasks such as the color-word Stroop, flanker, and spatial conflict task. Neuroimaging studies typically identify a fronto-parietal network engaged in conflict processing, but numerous additional regions are also reported. Ascribing putative functional roles to these regions is problematic because some may have less to do with conflict processing per se, but could be engaged in specific processes related to the… Expand
Neural Substrates of Attentive Listening Assessed with a Novel Auditory Stroop Task
TLDR
A novel auditory Stroop test is developed in which the relative dominance of semantic and sensory feature processing is reversed, and neural responses to incongruent stimuli studied with functional magnetic resonance imaging revealed greater recruitment of conflict loci. Expand
Word and position interference in stroop tasks: a behavioral and fMRI study
TLDR
Using high-field magnetic resonance imaging, the interference effect of a verbal (color-word) and a spatial Stroop task on the activation of cortical areas known to be dedicated to the attentional control is examined. Expand
Is conflict monitoring supramodal? Spatiotemporal dynamics of cognitive control processes in an auditory Stroop task
TLDR
Electroencephalographic recordings of brain activity were measured during an auditory Stroop task, using three different forms of behavioral response (overt verbal, covert verbal, and manual), that closely paralleled the previous visual Stroop study, finding that behavioral responses were slower and less accurate for incongruent than for congruent trials. Expand
Activation of the caudal anterior cingulate cortex due to task‐related interference in an auditory Stroop paradigm
TLDR
The neural correlates of an auditory Stroop task using fMRI found activation of the very caudal and posterior part of the ACC due to task‐related interference in an auditory stroop task. Expand
Selective perturbation of cognitive conflict in the human brain–A combined fMRI and rTMS study
TLDR
A causal role of the right IPS is suggested in the processing of the single conflict of Flanker (stimulus-stimulus) interference, as well as regions involved in the double conflict condition. Expand
Implicit and Explicit Attention to Pictures and Words: An fMRI-Study of Concurrent Emotional Stimulus Processing
TLDR
The present study utilized functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the neural processing of concurrently presented emotional stimuli under varying explicit and implicit attention demands to point to a dissociation of semantic-affective and sensory-perceptual processes for words. Expand
Supramodal executive control of attention: evidence from unimodal and crossmodal dual conflict effects
TLDR
There is a unified entity that oversees conflict processing acting supramodally by implementing comparable mechanisms in unimodal and crossmodal scenarios, which suggest that there is an equivalence in the computational mechanisms governing the allocation of executive control resources within and across modalities. Expand
Supramodal executive control of attention: Evidence from unimodal and crossmodal dual conflict effects
TLDR
There is a unified supramodal entity that supports conflict processing by implementing comparable mechanisms in unimodal and crossmodal scenarios, as shown by an additive interference effect of Task 1 on Task 2 under the time constraints. Expand
Priming and backward influences in the human brain: processing interactions during the stroop interference effect.
TLDR
Congruency-related differences interacted with SOA, showing the greatest behavioral and electrophysiological effects when irrelevant stimulus information preceded the task-relevant target and reduced effects when the irrelevant information followed the relevant target. Expand
The Complex Pre-Execution Stage of Auditory Cognitive Control: ERPs Evidence from Stroop Tasks
TLDR
This study investigated the early ERP components in an auditory Stroop paradigm, during which participants were asked to identify the volume of spoken words and ignore the word meanings, and proposed a 3-stage cognitive control model for a more detailed description of the human cognitive control mechanism in the auditory Stroops.

Color-Word Matching Stroop Task: Separating Interference and Response Conflict
TLDR
It is argued that the region around the banks of the inferior frontal sulcus is required to solve interference problems, a concept which can also be seen as a component of task set management. Expand
Neural basis of the Stroop interference task: Response competition or selective attention?
TLDR
Selective activation of the left IpreCS is compatible with findings from previous neuroimaging, lesion, electrophysiological, and behavioral studies and is presumably related to the mediation of competing articulatory demands during the interference condition. Expand
Common and distinct neural substrates of attentional control in an integrated Simon and spatial Stroop task as assessed by event-related fMRI
TLDR
The findings suggest that the interference effects of these two tasks are caused by different types of conflict but both invoke similar sources of top-down modulation. Expand
Cognitive and Brain Consequences of Conflict
TLDR
The behavioral and fMRI results taken together seem to argue against a single unified network for processing conflict, but instead support either distinct networks for each conflict task or a single network that monitors conflict with different sites used to resolve the conflict. Expand
Visual spatial localization conflict: an fMRI study
TLDR
The results indicated that spatial localization conflict activated pre-motor and superior parietal regions in the right hemisphere known to be involved in spatial localization, but anterior cingulate activation did not reach threshold, which suggests that conflict within a single functional modality may be processed in the region embodying that modality, and anterior cedulate may be called on only to resolve conflict between modalities.

An fMRI study of stroop word-color interference: evidence for cingulate subregions subserving multiple distributed attentional systems
TLDR
Findings support a parallel distributed processing model for word-color interference in which portions of the anterior cingulate cortex modify the strengths of multiple neural pathways used to read and name colors. Expand
An event-related functional MRI study comparing interference effects in the Simon and Stroop tasks.
TLDR
Activation during the Stroop task replicated findings from two earlier fMRI studies, and included anterior cingulate, supplementary motor, visual association, inferior temporal, inferior parietal, inferior frontal, and dorsolateral prefrontal cortices, as well as the caudate nuclei. Expand

The time course results suggest that the action of various brain areas can be temporally dissociated. Expand
Interference and Facilitation Effects during Selective Attention: An H2 15O PET Study of Stroop Task Performance
TLDR
Increases in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were observed in a network of structures that have been previously associated with selective attention, including the anterior cingulate gyrus, the frontal polar cortex, the inferior parietal lobule, and the thalamus, as well as the lingual gyrus.

The Role of the Anterior Cingulate Cortex in Conflict Processing: Evidence from Reverse Stroop Interference
TLDR
Although ACC activation was very extensive when print color interfered with word reading performance, the level of conflict, as measured by reaction time costs, was only moderate compared to other conditions, suggesting that either the ACC is differentially sensitive to various types of conflict or its function should be extended to include other cognitive constructs, such as resolution of prior inhibition.
