However, they display normal interference on color-word Stroop tasks. To determine whether psychopathic individuals' attention deficits are specific to conditions associated with the anterior cingulate (ACC) conflict monitoring system, we administered a Stroop task with a mostly-congruent condition associated with ACC activation, and a mostly-incongruent… CONTINUE READING
