In an attempt to clarify regional signal intensity changes, which may accompany the performance of the Stroop Color-Word task, healthy subjects were imaged using the fMRI BOLD technique while performing a modified version of the task. Both the AAA and VOA subdivisions of the anterior cingulate cortex were significantly activated during the interference condition; however, only the signal intensity change within the VOA correlated with task performance. Additionally, signal intensity change was… Expand

The BOLD response during Stroop task-like inhibition paradigms: Effects of task difficulty and task-relevant modality
TLDR
Examination of the response to colour, number, and shape Stroop tasks whilst BOLD fMRI images were acquired on a Siemens 3T MRI scanner indicated facilitation and interference effects and a noticeable effect of task difficulty. Expand
Neural correlates of focused attention in cognitively normal older adults
TLDR
Verbal responses may provide a more suitable modality for older adults and certain patient populations and are consistent with previous manual modality Stroop-fMRI studies in older adults. Expand
Decreased activation of the anterior cingulate in bipolar patients: an fMRI study.
TLDR
These findings suggest differential processing strategies of bipolar patients and support the theory of altered frontal systems in these patients during the performance of cognitive tasks. Expand
A fNIRS investigation of switching and inhibition during the modified Stroop task in younger and older adults
TLDR
For both older and younger adults, inhibition and switching are associated with distinct patterns of prefrontal activation and that age-related differences exist in these patterns such that prefrontal activation seems to be more spread out at different sites in older adults. Expand
Neural Networks of Motor and Cognitive Inhibition are Dissociated Between Brain Hemispheres: An fMRI Study
TLDR
Cognitive inhibition activation obtained without motor involvement, to motor inhibition alone, in a group of young right-handed volunteers, utilizing a classical color Stroop task, and a Stop Task appears to support that inhibition is a complicated function involving working memory, attention, semantic decision, and motivation modules. Expand
Color Stroop and negative priming in schizophrenia: An fMRI study
TLDR
Different patterns of fMRI activation may reflect faulty interaction in schizophrenia within networks of brain regions that are vital to selective attention. Expand
Behavioral conflict, anterior cingulate cortex, and experiment duration: Implications of diverging data
TLDR
It is found that the duration of an experiment can dramatically affect interpretations of the results, including the roles in which particular regions are thought to play in cognition, and this result suggests the lack of a strong relationship between behavioral measurements of conflict and anterior cingulate activity. Expand
Cognitive neuroactivation using SPECT and the Stroop Colored Word Test in patients with diffuse brain injury.
TLDR
Patients with diffuse brain injury were slower than healthy controls on the interference subtask of the Stroop test, suggesting difficulty with resistance to distractions and activation effects in posterior brain areas in addition with activation of previously observed anterior brain regions. Expand
RELATED TO THE CONGRUENT AND INCONGRUENT PART OF THE STROOP TEST PERFORMANCE-NOT ONLY DIFFERENCES BUT ALSO SIMILARITIES IN THE BRAIN ACTIVITY PATTERN . A NEUROIMAGING PET ( H 2 O 15 ) STUDY
Previous studies on brain activity during the completion of the Stroop test focused mainly on finding differences between brain activity during the completion of the congruent and incongruent partsExpand
Activity and functional connectivity of inferior frontal cortex associated with response conflict.
TLDR
Bilateral inferior frontal cortex is involved in response suppression associated with interference in the counting Stroop task, and this work concludes that the nonlinguistic nature of inferior frontal activity is underscored. Expand

Brain activation and pupil response during covert performance of the Stroop Color Word task.
TLDR
Results from the BOLD study indicate that brain regions participating in selective visual attention and in the selection of motor programs involved in speech were activated more by the Stroop task than by the baseline tasks. Expand
Investigations of the functional anatomy of attention using the stroop test
TLDR
The results provide evidence for the involvement of anterior right hemisphere and medial frontal structures in attentional tasks but also indicate that time effects can confound task specific activations. Expand
Interference and Facilitation Effects during Selective Attention: An H2 15O PET Study of Stroop Task Performance
TLDR
Increases in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were observed in a network of structures that have been previously associated with selective attention, including the anterior cingulate gyrus, the frontal polar cortex, the inferior parietal lobule, and the thalamus, as well as the lingual gyrus. Expand
The anterior cingulate cortex mediates processing selection in the Stroop attentional conflict paradigm.
TLDR
Regional cerebral blood flow, an index of local neuronal activity, was measured using positron emission tomography during the performance of the classic Stroop color/word task in eight healthy right-handed subjects to provide support for the role of the anterior cingulate cortex in attentional processing through the selection and recruitment of processing centers appropriate for task execution.

An fMRI study of stroop word-color interference: evidence for cingulate subregions subserving multiple distributed attentional systems
TLDR
Findings support a parallel distributed processing model for word-color interference in which portions of the anterior cingulate cortex modify the strengths of multiple neural pathways used to read and name colors. Expand
The counting stroop: An interference task specialized for functional neuroimaging—validation study with functional MRI
The anterior cingulate cortex has been activated by color Stroop tasks, supporting the hypothesis that it is recruited to mediate response selection or allocate attentional resources when confrontedExpand
The emotional counting stroop paradigm: a functional magnetic resonance imaging probe of the anterior cingulate affective division
TLDR
The ecStroop will be a useful fMRI probe of ACad function in anxiety disorders and offer a within-group spatial dissociation of AC function based upon information content (i.e., cognitive vs. emotional) and/or presence of behavioral interference. Expand

TLDR
Independent component analysis was used to analyze two fMRI data sets from a subject performing 6-min trials composed of alternating 40-sec Stroop color-naming and control task blocks, and produced improved estimates of the temporal and spatial extent of task-related activation in the authors' data compared with principal component analysis (PCA).

TLDR
These findings suggest that single-trial paradigms will be able to exploit the high temporal resolution of fMRI and provide experimental flexibility and time-resolved data for individual brain regions on a trial-by-trial basis. Expand
Localization of cognitive operations in the human brain.
TLDR
Support for the general hypothesis that the human brain localizes mental operations of the kind posited by cognitive theories is integrated in the performance of cognitive tasks such as reading comes from studies in mental imagery, timing, and memory. Expand
