To obtain a direct quantitative comparison of the effect sizes in the native and in the novel words, the novel words were intermixed with L1 German color words. The Stroop task thus promises to be an excellent extension to previous studies, because it allows to assess whether reading a novel word will automatically activate its meaning.
Neutral stimuli are those stimuli in which only the text similarly to stimuli 1 of Stroop's experimentor color similarly to stimuli 3 of Stroop's experiment are displayed.
By contrast, there is no logical conflict between the shape and the color of a green triangle. Only a few looked at how acquiring the meaning of a novel word might be influenced by consolidation e. Consequently, this task should make it easier to ignore the presented word and its meaning.
Hmm, could there be a connection between our increasingly polluted environment and more toxic consumer products anti-bacterial, stain-resistant, UV-protected, …you name it and an increasingly conservative and irrational political climate?
Session 2: manual Stroop task, with a different subset of four novel color words and their German translations as stimuli Stroop 2. Food for thought, and further research. Experiment 3 returned to the design of Experiment 1 and tested whether removing the German color word trials from the Stroop blocks affected the basic novel-word Stroop effect.
More sensitive people can experience effects such as short term memory loss, confusion, and mood changes from relatively minor toxic exposures. In the more recent version of Yeung et al.
