Three theories of Stroop interference are considered: perceptual conflict theory (Hock and Egeth, 1970), response competition theory (Morton, 1969) and conceptual encoding theory (Seymour, 1977). The first two fail to provide a full explanation of the available data, and Seymour's evidence is incomplete. Two experiments are reported. In the first, typical Stroop interference occurs in naming colour patches. In the second, subjects responded to colour patches with learned letter name responses… Expand

Time course analysis of the Stroop phenomenon.
Dyer (1971) investigated the response competition hypothesis of the Stroop phenomenon by temporally separating the color and word components of single stimuli (incongruent, control, and congruent).Expand
The effects of effort on stroop interference.
TLDR
Stroop interference was reduced at a stage during the processing of word meaning as a result of the effect of effort using an inter-subject competition procedure designed to manipulate effort. Expand
Interference effects in the Stroop and Simon paradigms.
TLDR
Interference was marked with bilateral stimuli in a reverse Simon task, supporting an integrative account of Stroop and Simon effects in terms of cognitive activation and the salience of irrelevant stimuli. Expand
Training Reveals the Sources of Stroop and Flanker Interference Effects
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that dimensional overlap is necessary for the generation of congruency effects, pathway automaticity can affect the size of consequences, and training enhances the degree of automatic processing in a given pathway. Expand
EFFECTS OF PRACTICE ON STROOP CONGRUITY
Automaticity, both reading and response, response competition, translation models, and the imbalance/uncertainty model of the Stroop effect were investigated. Two participants received four weeks ofExpand
Verbal coding and the elimination of Stroop interference in a matching task.
TLDR
Testing the hypothesis that Stroop interference can be eliminated if subjects can be induced to process target colors using a coding system separate from the coding system used to process distractors concluded that this hypothesis was false. Expand
The myth of ballistic processing: Evidence from Stroop’s paradigm
  • D. Besner

  • 2001
TLDR
This work shows that when a neutral baseline is replaced by congruent trials, single letter cuing and coloring manipulations are combined, attentional window conditions are blocked, and thecongruent/incongruent trial ratio is 20/80, the Stroop effect is eliminated. Expand
Interference in Dutch–French Bilinguals: Stimulus and Response Conflict in Intra- and Interlingual Stroop
TLDR
The results suggest that second language words influence semantic and response processing similarly to first language words, rather than having diminished semantic and/or response influences. Expand
Coloring Single Stroop Elements: Reducing Automaticity or Slowing Color Processing?
  • J. S. Monahan
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Journal of general psychology
  • 2001
TLDR
Automaticity theory and the effect of coloring a single element were tested with all or only 1 element colored in Stroop tasks, and a continuous flow approach to the Stroop effect is presented. Expand
The time course of picture-word interference.
If a word is printed inside the outline drawing of a concrete object, interference patterns as in Stroop research are obtained under the instruction to name the picture or to read the word. Smith andExpand

SummaryA new functional response competition model to describe the cognitive processes underlying the Stroop phenomenon is proposed. The main challenge for any explanation is the asymmetry of theExpand

TLDR
Lyperimental findings were emphasized in contrast to the results of correlational studies, and the bulk of the material was produced since the 1966 review of Jensen and Rohwer, to illustrate use of the Stroop paradigm as a too! for the stud)’ of other psychological processes. Expand

TLDR
A comparable effect of print colour was found when subjects reacted to season names by naming the colour associated with the name, or with its opposite, suggesting that Stroop congruity and interference effects occur during conceptual encoding, and not during response production. Expand

Abstract This survey of many researches of the author shows that neither training nor discriminability of the stimulus can explain the longer duration of the naming process as compared with theExpand

TLDR
The sources of the word's power to interfere with color-naming and the events involved in the interference itself have not received much attention. Expand
What does a Man do after he Makes an Error? An Analysis of Response Programming
TLDR
Responses after errors are inaccurate, but are not slow when they require the subject to make the response which he should have made on the previous trial, so subjects must recognise new signals as soon as they occur. Expand
