The performance advantage for spatially compatible mappings of physical locations to keypress responses, relative to incompatible mappings, is eliminated when stimulus color, rather than location, is relevant on half of the trials. In Experiment 1, we compared the effects of mixing for different stimulus modes (physical locations, arrow directions, and… CONTINUE READING
