Stroop You, Stroop Me 2 The Stroop phenomenon represents a classic demonstration of intrastimulus attributes interference is revealed typical additional traditional latency to name the ink color of a incongruent color word stimulus (e.g.,saying “red” to the word “blue” appearing in red ink) above and beyond that require to name the ink color of a non word stimulus (e.g., saying “red” in response to a rectangle or a row of “x”s appearing in red ink). Although over one thousand articles have been published concerning the nature and application of the stroop phenomenon, much debate remains two prominent threads can be observed in the stroop phenomenon literature to date. The first thread concerns the elucidation of mechanisms giving rise to the presence and magnitude of the stroop effect. Such mechanisms include mental faculties such as memorial encoding and retrieval, attentional resources and allocations thereof, and language production and comprehension. The second thread concerns the applications of stroop task inform accounts of individual differences in memorial encoding and retrieval due to past experiences and neuropsychological syndromes particularly interesting line of research regard has come to be characterized as it falls under the rubric as “emotional stroop”.

Interesting examples studies investigating the emotional stroop phenomenon include Domier, Moterosso, Brody, Simon, Mendrek, Olmstead, Jarvik, Cohen, and London (2007) and Lang and Sarmiento, 2004, Block 2004, Lusher, Chandler, Ball (2004).
