Sequential modulation is the finding that the sizes of several selective-attention phenomena—namely, the Simon, flanker, and Stroop effects—are larger following congruent trials than following incongruent trials. In order to rule out relatively uninteresting explanations of sequential modulation that are based on a variety of stimulus- and response-repetition confounds, a four-alternative forced choice task must be used, such that all trials with any kind of repetition can be omitted from the… CONTINUE READING
