The Simon effect indicates that choice reactions can be performed more quickly if the response corresponds spatially to the stimulus even when stimulus location is irrelevant to the task. Two experiments tested an intentional approach to the Simon effect that assigns a critical role to the cognitively represented action goal (i. e., the intended action effect). It was assumed that the direction of the Simon effect depends on stimulus-goal correspondence, that is, that responses are faster with… CONTINUE READING
