Masked stimuli can cause partial motor activation and prime responses to subsequent stimuli. Under certain conditions, a biphasic pattern appears, such that positive priming precedes a negative phase, which has been interpreted as evidence of an inhibitory mechanism that suppresses the motor activity caused by the prime. In this article, the authors report evidence for a further reversal in priming: In two experiments, the authors found that the negative compatibility effect was followed by a… CONTINUE READING
