Testing the Stroop Effect with Grayscale Stimulus Presentation

Event

2016 Midwestern Psychological Association Annual Conference

Abstract

In this study we use polychromatic and grayscale words to examine the influence of hue type on word recognition in the context of the Stroop task. Hue type did not influence the size of the Stroop effect, suggesting hue and meaning information were processed by separate word streams, regardless of color or grayscale stimulus set.
