Attentional Control in the Asymmetry of Stroop-like pitch and colour paradigms

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding


Two separate Stroop-like paradigms with multimodal auditory and visual stimuli were presented. The results revealed a paradigm asymmetry where auditory stimuli resulted in a Stroop-like effect in both paradigms meanwhile visual stimuli only resulted in a Stroop-like effect in the colour-paradigm. The conclusion involved discussing the Working Memory attention and visual and auditory perceptual streams states that audition is superior to vision in terms of attentional control of semantic information.
